Sewer workers in the London area of Whitechapel have reportedly found the dreams of the young decomposing in a giant blockage in the system which leads all the way back to 10 Downing Street.

It’s believed they got there after the current government’s caretaker leader knowingly flushed all the hopes and dreams of the younger demographics down the toilet in the Prime Minister’s office.

The process was begun the moment Ms May first mouthed the celebrated phrase “Brexit means Brexit”.

It has accelerated with “red, white and blue Brexit”, gathered more flush speed with “strong and stable” and now hitting some sort of repetitive velocity liable the break the flush mechanism and even the cistern at Downing Street following the second reading of the EU Withdrawal Bill.

It’s believed hundreds of pliant and plainly gutless MPs have pitched in to help alleviate the strain on Ms May’s creaking system with shoving youthful aspirations into their own publicly funded toilets and pulling flush as fast as they can.

Workers are hard at it with shovels but are believed to be making slow progress. Each time they chisel out a dream another three or four back into the blockage and build it again even larger.

A spokesman for Downing Street offered the following reassurance to the young people of the country.

“Don’t worry. We believe at present Ms May will be able to continue to flush your idea of a strong and stable future down the toilet. Please keep sending your dreams to her. She’s fanatically committed to dealing with everything you want as speedily as she can.”

Young people are requested not to add their angst, horror or tears to the load Ms May is dealing with as she won’t be able to make head or tails of such emotions, as she’s a robot.
