As the latest Brexit deadline looms, the arguments against asking for another extension from the EU so that a deal can be reached are getting stranger by the day.
Now government minister, James Cleverly has taken to Twitter to explain to us, using a graph, why the government shouldn’t ask for more time.
Cleverly supported leave in the run up to 2016’s referendum is was one of the most high profile backers of Theresa May’s failed Brexit deal.
The 50-year-old wrote on Twitter:
Why 'more time doesn't actually help 'get a deal.'
We want a new deal, will leave with no deal if we have to, but no more delays.
No… We’re not sure either. It seems that Cleverly is not so clever-ly.
Naturally, Twitter had a field day with this strange graph.
The meme potential was strong.
