Anything that touches Theresa May's new Brexit plan will die, doctors warn

DOCTORS have confirmed that the prime minister’s new Brexit plan is so extravagantly toxic that any living thing that touches it will die. 

The plan, unveiled yesterday, has already caused the evacuation of Parliament and the decontamination by immolation of an unnamed Conservative backbencher who briefy brushed past it in the panicked rush for exits.

Clinical toxicologist Dr Helen Archer said: “The combination of alternative arrangements on the backstop, workers’ rights, a customs union and a second referendum has created a deal more radioactive than polonium and more fatal than the deadliest neurotoxins.

“Trees wither within half a mile of it. Birds flying overhead drop from the sky. Animals abandon their young to flee its scent on the wind.

“Just based on her proximity to the plan May is tainted for life and will have to be sealed in concrete and never again have physical contact with another living human, which senior Tories say was pretty much her retirement plan anyway.

“It is, fortunately, already completely dead and should fade from headlines entirely within no more than a week. Do not look at it directly until then.”

Are you suffering from imposter syndrome or are you genuinely shit?

DO YOU feel like you’ve fluked your way into your current position, aren’t up to it, and are terrified of being found out?

You could be suffering from ‘imposter syndrome’ or your fears could be absolutely justified, because you’re crap. Find out:

Do you feel like you’re only pretending to be an adult?

A. Yes. I’m constantly amazed I’m allowed to have a mortgage and a car!

B. No, I’ve always been incredibly mature. As I’ve pointed out many times, I was the first kid in my year to start wanking.

Do you frequently play down your achievements?

A. Well I don’t really have any. Yes, I wrote that novel I suppose, and I finished the London Marathon but my time wasn’t great, and I kind of founded a charity but nothing impressive.

B. No. Why should I keep quiet about amazing achievements like my £20k-a-year job, my bronze Duke of Edinburgh award and never having been stung by a wasp?

Do you avoid applying for promotions due to a lack of confidence?

A. It’s not a lack of confidence, it’s that I know for certain I won’t get them and don’t want to humiliate myself.

B. I apply for every promotion going, but never get them. I don’t know why. I’ve got three GCSEs.

Do you have an irrational fear of being found out?

A. All the time.

B. What for? Is this something to do with the petty cash? Shit, forget I said that.


Mostly As: You are suffering from imposter syndrome. Build your self-confidence with professional counselling or regular cocaine use.

Mostly Bs: You are a mindlessly overconfident twat who isn’t aware of their own failings. You’ll be just fine.
