DAVID Davis has arrived at EU negotiations with a cake that he wants to eat but then still have afterwards.
Brexit minister Davis bought the cake, a low quality Victoria sponge, on the way to his meeting this morning and made sure to not offer it around.
Davis said: “If you’re being literal about it then yeah, I want to have my cake and eat it too, which has nothing to do with Brexit or the EU.
“I’m just a man who wants to be able to eat a cake and then still have the cake afterwards.
EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier added: “I’m pretty sure it had a reduced sticker on it so we weren’t that fussed.
“Anyway he ate all the cake, and now he doesn’t have a cake, although he has the cake box which he insists is the same thing.”
