Sharma bid to BORE us all into ‘no deal’ Brexit fails miserably

Alok Sharma: I’ve cartoonised the pic of him and he’s STILL wearing a sneer on his face!

What kind of preparation do Tory ministers undergo before appearing on the morning media round, spouting their nonsense? Preparation H?

As a friend said to me after Alok Sharma’s humiliation today (December 14): “He’s got to be buttsore after that!”*

Sharma had appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, where presenter Nick Robinson listened to his claims that the UK could end up with an Australia-style trade deal with the EU, then delivered a comprehensive shafting:

Now, it is bad enough when a politician fails to answer a question that they could reasonably have expected to come their way.

But when that person then traipses to other studios and fails to answer other questions in the same way, it is a calamity.

So, for example, we had this:

And this:

And this:

(Anybody remember trying to find toilet rolls in supermarkets, back in March and April? That was a fun game, wasn’t it?)

And, indeed, this:

Some have suggested that perhaps Sharma was hoping to send us off to sleep by droning at us…

Despite the fact that Sharma was sent out with a message that all is well and no matter what happens in the trade negotiations with the EU, people here in the UK will be able to get on with their lives as normal, we came away with the following information:

Boris Johnson’s Conservative government is still lying to us about the threat of trading with the EU on WTO rules, by saying it will be an “Australia-style” deal. The Aussies don’t have a deal with the EU.

Business will face the imposition of huge import/export tariffs and Johnson’s Cons are not providing the information they need, if they are to be prepared.

Shoppers can expect the price of their groceries to rise by five per cent and this will be a disaster for people who have a limited budget.

There will be shortages of some products, meaning shops – and shoppers – will try to stockpile them… and this will make the shortages of these products worse.


Alok Sharma is an imbecile.

Some Twitter wits have enjoyed themselves at his expense:

But it’s cold comfort. We all know that, in the end, it is the public who will suffer as a result of Sharma’s incompetence.

Preparation H is a well-known treatment for haemorrhoids.
