Is it now becoming necessary for the 20 (XX) Committee [a counter espionage committee dating back to the Second World War], housed in a secure office near Vauxhall Cross in London, to investigate the possibility that our Prime Minister Theresa May may be a double-agent conspiring with a Michel Barnier to keep the UK a remaining fully-paid up member of the European Union?

Is it now becoming necessary for the 20 (XX) Committee [a counter espionage committee dating back to the Second World War], housed in a secure office near Vauxhall Cross in London, to investigate the possibility that our Prime Minister Theresa May may be a double-agent conspiring with a Michel Barnier to keep the UK a remaining fully-paid up member of the European Union?

The Prime Minister’s latest suggestion to extend the Brexit transition period by twelve months, is beyond satire – even Groucho Marx couldn’t come close!

Has the Prime Minister succumbed to the mind-bending strategy of the Irish foreign minister, Simon Coveney and his boss, the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar?

This continuous noise to the point of nausea about no border and a permanent backstop is straight out of the pages of the Ipcress File.

It is a pity the former foreign secretary Boris Johnson is no longer in post.

He may have considered tasking MI6 to investigate the Prime Minister’s approach, in the interest of the British state and its people who voted in majority to leave behind the European Union, its bloated bureaucracy, and beer-swilling leaders.

Like a good marine, the Prime Minister must do her duty and bring home the Union flag from Brussels – or someone else will!
