Grant Shapps Is Probably Regretting Posting This 'Brexit Verdict' Tweet

By Chris York

It’s been a pretty hectic week in UK politics and finally with some room to breathe on Saturday morning, a lot of people will be wondering how to wind down.

Except Grant Shapps, apparently.

According to an incredibly natural and definitely not posed photo posted on Twitter, the Tory MP has been awake for two-straight days absorbing the finer points of Theresa May’s draft Brexit agreement.

VERDICT: after 585 pages & copious cups of coffee, this #WithdrawalAgreement looks v. problematic. £39bn to get out of Europe, but run by Europe. -To support this, requires 2 key changes. 1.Unilateral method of leaving backstop. 2.Future trade deal fleshed out beyond flimsy 7 pgs pic.twitter.com/tKDHWjYb9H

It raises a number of question, first and foremost – who the hell uses a fresh cup for every single coffee?

Can you not use the same mug?

Also, after careful examination of the photo, HuffPost can confirm there isn’t actually a drop of coffee to be seen.

The mugs look very clean given all the coffee. Have you found the time to do the washing up too?

Remarkably, Shapps had an explanation, saying: “Ah, dishwasher broken. Part from Germany. Has required two weeks and counting.

“And that’s before Brexit.”

But one helpful Twitter user was on hand with a possible explanation, cheekily referencing Shapps’ controversial use of a pseudonym when he had a second job as a “multimillion-dollar web marketer”.

What’s even more remarkable is Shapps looks fresher at the end of his two-day caffeine binge than he did at the start.
