Public speaking is difficult. Public speaking about Brexit is harder.
So found the leader of the Welsh Conservative party, Andrew RT Davies, when he spoke at the Tory party conference in Birmingham on Tuesday.
Needless to say, he made a bit of a meal of his statement, which hoped to reassure listeners that Brexit would be a success.
You heard that right.
Mark my words. We will make breakfast... Brexit a success.
After that hash up, he's probably never bean so embarrased to have egg on his face. What a sausage. Let's hope that his career isn't toast now.
Twitter was quick to notice:

The leader of the Welsh Tories just made an absolute fool of himself by saying breakfast instead of brexit at the crescendo of his speech. — Jamie Ross (@Jamie Ross)
And to be fair, Mr Davies took it all in good humour:
Speech done at #CPC16...now off to sort out breakfast! — Andrew RT Davies (@Andrew RT Davies)
