Nan afraid that news of Royal baby will get lost in all this Brexit nonsense

A GRANDMOTHER is concerned that all the Brexit nonsense constantly on the news might overshadow the birth of a new Royal baby. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child is due next month and Margaret Gerving of Guildford cannot believe how selfish politicians are being by having their Brexit at the same time.

She said: “They should have asked the EU for this extension to last until the baby’s born. Then whatever happens we’d leave happy.

“I’m sure they think what they’re doing is important, but we really should be getting live updates on the people waiting outside the hospital by now and the news is still full of this shilly-shallying.

“Labour I could understand, but the Tories should know their priorities. Thatcher got the Falklands out of the way with a good week to spare before little William came along.

“Let’s get this Brexit, whatever it’s about, done and dusted then we can have a proper rejoice and a street party. That’s what everyone needs.”

Gerving added: “I voted for the Brexit of course. Well I thought we all were.”
