Tories ask to see Labour’s Brexit homework

Dominic Raab saying: "Go on - show us your sums!". Keir Starmer replies: "No! Do your own homework!"

Dominic ‘Raab C Brexit’ has sent a letter to Keir Starmer asking to see Labour’s Brexit plan:

As you can imagine, Starmer told Raab to:

Do your own homework, Dominic! I mean it! I’ll tell Miss!

Woof woof

Although the Tories definitely did their Brexit assignment, the detailed plan they produced was eaten by the dog. As Theresa May explained to Michel Barnier:

Let me be clear, my cabinet and I stayed up all night hammering out this plan. I don’t mean to furrow my own wheat, but the end results were banging. We came up with solutions to problems that no one had even dreamed of. We even worked out a remedy to the Irish border that didn’t involve magic.

When asked if she could write these ideas out again, May said:

We just need another decade to put it all together, sir.

The shifty PM then took an illicit bite of the sausage roll she had hidden in her blazer sleeve.


It’s worth pointing out the preposterousness of the Conservative Party – which is in government – criticising Labour – which isn’t in government and doesn’t have access to the UK’s army of civil servants – for not having a 100% fleshed-out Brexit strategy.

Especially as the Tories’ Brexit plan is so poorly fleshed-out it makes Jack Skellington look like Jack Black.

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.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
