A workman tasked with building a simple exit from the European Union has appeared on national television to place the blame for delays on the 649 tools she has to work with.
Mrs May, of T.M. May Builders Esq., was hired by the British public to create an exit from the European Union and make good the surrounding area.
May assured the client the work would be strong and stable, providing references to similar projects she’d completed for the Home Office, but the schedule soon started to drift.
The project started badly when Dave the labourer, tasked with knocking through the exit, only turned up for four hours a week and spent most of his time drinking tea and reading The Sun.
Dave was replaced by Dom and Dom was replaced by Steve and the client, now desperate for an exit, donned a high visibility yellow vest and tried to take control of the project himself.
As the project reached breaking point, May suggested that instead of the grand exit proposed by the now long departed architects, perhaps a smaller more contained exit, like a cat flap, would be acceptable.
After the cat flap plan was rejected twice, May told the client she’d be round on Thursday to make a start on the exit but then cancelled saying she had to dig the foundations for an extension at the European Parliament.
With the British public still decidedly exit free, Mrs May took to national television to explain how the lack of progress wasn’t her fault and blamed the other 649 tools that sit in the House of Commons.
Ironically the Polish Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, says he could get the job done by March 29th with a simple veto.
