SURVEY of the Great British Public has overwhelmingly revealed that Barry and Paul Chuckle should be appointed as the new British Ambassadors to Brussels to replace the annoyingly honest and realistic Sir Ivan Rogers.
Peregrine Snook of the “Make Britain Great Again – Whenever That Was” campaign declared, “Well, why not. They have just as much of a clue as everyone else. I think their negotiating tactics of ‘To me, to you, to me, to you’ are the least muddled thinking we have heard on how to wrangle the best deal out of our (soon-to-be) ex-partners.”
“They both have great experience of EU negotiations as they have lived in Europe for approximately 70 years and Paul Chuckle allegedly broke his nose falling off a motorbike on the Greek Island of Cephalonia while trying to negotiate his way around a goatherd. They are both masters of physical comedy – those Europeans love that.
“If we can’t get them, how about Mr Bean ?”
Another resident of Basildon expressed the view that once Article 50 had been triggered, the Brothers’ other famous catchphrase ‘Oh dear, oh dear’ would also be highly appropriate.
