Sorry if this has been shared before, its from the Ladybird book of Brexit.

LEAVER: I want an omelette.

REMAINER: Right. It’s just we haven’t got any eggs.

LEAVER: Yes, we have. There they are. [HE POINTS AT A CAKE]

REMAINER: They’re in the cake.

LEAVER: Yes, get them out of the cake, please.

REMAINER: But we voted in 1974 to put them into a cake.

LEAVER: Yes, but that cake has got icing on it. Nobody said there was going to be icing on it.

REMAINER: Icing is good.

LEAVER: And there are raisins in it. I don’t like raisins. Nobody mentioned raisins. I demand another vote.




LEAVER: Right, where’s my omelette?

REMAINER: I told you, the eggs are in the cake.

LEAVER: Well, get them out.

EU: It’s our cake.

JEREMY CORBYN: Yes, get them out now.

REMAINER: I have absolutely no idea how to get them out. Don’t you know how to get them out?

LEAVER: Yes! You just get them out and then you make an omelette.

REMAINER: But how?! Didn’t you give this any thought?

LEAVER: Saboteur! You’re talking eggs down. We could make omelettes before the eggs went into the cake, so there’s no reason why we can’t make them now.

THERESA MAY: It’s OK, I can do it.


THERESA MAY: There was a vote to remove the eggs from the cake, and so the eggs will be removed from the cake.

REMAINER: Yeah, but…

LEAVER: Hang on, if we take the eggs out of the cake, does that mean we don’t have any cake? I didn’t say I didn’t want the cake, just the bits I don’t like.

EU: It’s our cake.

REMAINER: But you can’t take the eggs out of the cake and then still have a cake.

LEAVER: You can. I saw the latest Bake Off and you can definitely make cakes without eggs in them. It’s just that they’re horrible.

REMAINER: Fine. Take the eggs out. See what happens.

LEAVER: It’s not my responsibility to take the eggs out. Get on with it.

REMAINER: Why should I have to come up with some long-winded incredibly difficult chemical process to extract eggs that have bonded at the molecular level to the cake, while somehow still having the cake?

LEAVER: You lost, get over it.

THERESA MAY: By the way, I’ve started the clock on this.

REMAINER: So I assume you have a plan?

THERESA MAY: Actually, back in a bit. Just having another election.

REMAINER: Jeremy, are you going to sort this out?

JEREMY CORBYN: Yes. No. Maybe.

EU: It’s our cake.

LEAVER: Where’s my omelette? I voted for an omelette.

REMAINER: This is ridiculous. This is never going to work. We should have another vote, or at least stop what we’re doing until we know how to get the eggs out of the cake while keeping the bits of the cake that we all like.


REMAINER: Fine, I’m moving to France. The cakes are nicer there.

LEAVER: You can’t. We’ve taken your freedom of movement.

One tramp to another : " If we had some eggs we'd have egg and bacon if we had some bacon ".

I love it, having a good giggle Nonnie

Nonnie Fri 23-Nov-18 15:21:13

and we all need a good giggle Jalima08, especially when it comes to Brexit!

Jalima1108 Fri 23-Nov-18 15:56:46

Is that a new Ladybird Brexit book?
Someone gave DH the Five Go to Brexit Island book ages ago, I haven't read it.

Nonnie Fri 23-Nov-18 16:07:58

Pretty sure its a spoof, there is one about Brexit on their website but its not this one!

abbey Sun 25-Nov-18 11:06:56

Or we could just have an eggless omelette. ( I make them often) Put the cake away and leave it to rot. Cake is not good for you.

Good to have a bit of light relief with the dreaded Brexit. It will forever be Eggsit for me now.

Jalima1108 Sun 25-Nov-18 12:40:29

I'm wondering how you make an eggless omelette

Is it a new EU recipe?

Nonnie Sun 25-Nov-18 13:17:42

Jalima I think its what we will end up with next April, no eggs, no omlette! grin

Jalima1108 Sun 25-Nov-18 13:26:40

I want cake!

Nonnie Mon 26-Nov-18 09:04:33

Me too, with eggs, butter, sugar and flour!

muddynails Fri 08-Feb-19 10:35:33

who needs EU eggs, whats wrong with British eggs.
How do you make a sponge without eggs and is it as good as an eggy one?
