So The Daily Show came up with a fool-proof, simple way of explaining the problem, and they used British Bake Off to do it.
It’s called the Great British Break-Off.
In the clip, Theresa May’s face, and her recent remarks about Brexit and the government definitely delivering Brexit were superimposed on a contestant’s body as the judges brutally critiqued her baking.
May baked ‘Theresa’s Brexit crumble’ but the judges weren’t happy.
Her talking head said:
We have a duty to deliver Brexit and that’s what I and the government want to do and it’s what we are going to do.
Paul Hollywood laments, “Oh dear. It’s breaking up far too easily.”
Mary Berry adds:
It’s quite divided there, isn’t it?
Hollywood destroys May’s plans with a damning assessment:
To say it’s a disaster would be a humiliation to ‘disaster.’
I think maybe you got a bit rushed at the end and a bit sort of panicky.
“We’re going to really, really, really miss you,” the host said, as a stony May watched on.
