Davis brings cake to EU meeting and insists he wants to eat it then somehow take it home

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.”
