Theresa May has dramatically announced the date for triggering Article 50 with a press conference today.

Before pressing the big red button that triggers the process to trigger the process of sending the UK back to the good old days of the early 1950’s Theresa May reportedly said;

“Fuck it what’s the worst that can happen?”

Theresa May was born in the mid 1950’s and has somehow managed to heroically struggle through two housing booms, 60 years of peace in Europe, generally linear economic growth, low inflation, falling food prices, high salaries, an index linked final salary pension scheme and a husband who works for a $1.6 Trillion investment fund.

“You lot are sick of experts so let’s just see what happens when we press this big red button.”

She added “I hope you all enjoyed the NHS. I expect that’s next.”
