A memo surfaced on 15 November which suggests that the government’s Brexit plan is even more imaginary than Iain Duncan Smith’s conscience.
The first memo was bad enough, but now a second memo has emerged, saying that:
Frankly, I’m beginning to wonder if we’re even planning on coming up with a plan. I asked Boris about it the other day. He just mumbled, and then shouted ‘what’s that over there?’ By the time I turned back round, he’d run off.
Even more embarrassing, it also turns out that a third memo has leaked, revealing that:
I’ve talked to every office in government, and asked if they were planning on coming up with a plan. And every last one of the scoundrels pointed behind me and then ran off. Why do I keep falling for it? I know exactly what they’re doing, but I keep saying to myself ‘you’ll look pretty silly if there is something’. But there never bloody is!
Regardless, it’s now becoming clear to me that there aren’t even plans to start planning a plan. It’s also clear that we could replace most of the people in government with cardboard cut-outs and not notice any ill effects.
So now you’re probably thinking that things couldn’t get any more #awks. And yet:
Hello? Hello!? Is anyone even reading these ruddy memos? I’m telling you that the government is operating with the intellectual prowess of a barrel full of drowned squirrels! I’m telling you that the government’s Brexit strategy is the biggest load of hot-air and forgery since President Trump’s blow-dry comb-over! I’m telling you that we’re heading for an iceberg, and the people who are supposed to be at the wheel are standing around talking about how good they are at steering! BUT THEY’RE NOT BLOODY STEERING, ARE THEY?!?
The government’s response
Theresa May was quick to respond, by saying:
Brexit means Brexit.
Dear God, I hope there’s some sort of miracle that will carry me away from all this.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
