Johnson, Gove and Rees-Mogg are our Brexit Dream Team too, says EU

THE EU has confirmed that it would be delighted to deal with the Brexit ‘Dream Team’ of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Jacob Rees-Mogg.

EU negotiator Michel Barnier admitted that a prime minister completely beholden to the City’s every desire, a deputy skilled at explaining away catastrophic failure and a chancellor of the exchequer from the mid-19th Century would be perfect.

He added: “Johnson is the guy who was pro-Brexit until the very last minute and is desperately trying to save his career? Yes, I could absolutely work with that.

“Gove I only know as the man who whose very touch turns everything to shit. A sort of ‘Shit-Midas’. That is very useful experience for these negotiations.

“And Mr Rees-Mogg does not seem to be aware of the existence of microchips and still refers to Sri Lanka as ‘Ceylon’. Who better?”
