The notorious Chequers plan saw Theresa May gather her cabinet and make them agree to a Brexit plan. None of them actually agreed with the plan, of course. They merely agreed to have one. Except for the ministers who didn’t, obviously, who’ve all subsequently fucked off.
Regardless of the exodus, the Chequers plan was handed over to the EU. As ever, it hasn’t gone down that well.
Waffle means waffle
According to a senior source at the EU:
It’s just nonsense. The first 100 pages are just the word ‘Brexit’ repeated over and over. The 50 pages after that are ‘Brexit’ but in different fonts.
They tried to get creative after that – writing ‘Brexit’ in other languages and such. Most other languages don’t have a word for ‘Brexit’, though, so they just used foreign words for ‘shit’ like ‘merde’, and ‘scheisse’.
Sadly, there are only so many words for poo. That’s presumably why they switched to writing ‘Brexit’ in binary, morse code, sign language, etc.
The final part was an essay from Jacob Rees-Mogg about what Brexit meant to him. It was just another 30 pages of the word ‘Brexit’.
Still though, it’s a big step up from anything else they’ve sent us.
The government has been asked why they even bothered submitting such a steaming pile of Brexit. A spokesperson responded:
Report means report.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
