On Tuesday, Theresa May went on a whistle-stop tour of Berlin and Paris to meet with Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel as she attempted to obtain approval for a longer Brexit extension.
It's the latest chapter in Theresa May's thoroughly shambolic tenure as prime minister and another embarrassing moment for the government.
It's so embarrassing that even Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, which has been supporting the Tory party, think it is a joke.
Nigel Dodds, the DUP's Westminister leader, labelled the talks are 'humiliating' and 'embarrassing' and accused May of taking 'a begging bowl to European leaders'.
The talks between the prime minister and the leaders of France and Germany is humiliating and embarrassing for the United Kingdom.
The problems the prime minister is attempting to solve were not created by the decision to leave the European Union, rather the ineffective negotiations by the prime minister to implement that decision
Nearly three years after the referendum the UK is today effectively holding out a begging bowl to European leaders.
This was followed by Nigel's wife, Diane Dodds, a DUP MEP, tweeting a picture of Olivier Twist begging for 'more' food, accompanied with the hashtags #May #Merkel #Macron.
For the day that’s in it. #may #merkel #macron https://t.co/5CHq6BtNHF
