Brexit is the topic du jour, and politicians and political journalists alike are trying to make sense of the complicated negotiations between the UK government and the EU.

People fluctuating between fear, cognitive dissonance and, well, confusion.

BBC political correspondent Chris Mason appears to have had it with the convoluted situation, and on BBC Breakfast weighed in on the matter.

Basically, he said, ask Mr Blobby. Because he has no idea what’s going to happen.

"So, where are we in this Brexit process?" he began. "You know what? People like me are paid to have insight and foresight and hindsight about these things, and to be able to project where we’re going to go."

To be quite honest, looking at things right now, I haven’t got the foggiest idea what is going to happen in the coming weeks.

Is the Prime Minister going to get a deal with the EU? Dunno. Is she going to get it through the Commons? Don’t know about that either.

I think you might as well get Mr Blobby back on to offer his analysis, because frankly I suspect his is now as good as mine.

His comment comes amidst chaos in parliament as members of Theresa May’s cabinet resigned just hours after she secured their support for the draft deal with Brussels.

Dominic Raab, Esther McVey and Northern Ireland minister Shailesh Vara has all resigned in protest of the deal.

Mason's attitude towards the situation is a mood.
