Minister for Brexit, David Davis, is to promise the UK what it needs in a speech at the Tory conference.
“Will it hurt?” he will say. “Not for me. For you, that’s a different matter. Hurt is such a subjective expression, don’t you think?”
The UK, which has been snappy and unable to concentrate on anything for ages, is looking forward to KY replacing EU and getting down to really pounding out new trade negotiations. As Davis thrusts his powerful argument home he will urge the country to “Bend over,” and triumphantly gasp, “this one’s for Maggie.”
Meanwhile more sensitive souls will be left pondering how it’s weird that withdrawal is going to be much more painful than entrance.
