In the run up to the EU referendum, we all remember Brexiteers telling us about the “sunlit uplands” of life after the EU.

With the UK hurtling towards a no-deal Brexit, Tory MP David Gauke was given a unicorn toy as a gift after he compared a “managed no-deal” Brexit scenario to a “unicorn that needs to be slaughtered”.
The Tory MP tweeted a photograph of himself with a bemused look as he held the unicorn. It was captioned:
An unexpected Christmas gift #SecretSanta.
Given that Brexit is frequently described as "a horse with a cone stuck on its head pretending to be a unicorn", people on Twitter found the gift hilarious.
