The Conservative Unionist Negotiation Team for Brexit have issued a plea not to refer to them by their unfortunate acronym.
The Conservatives and the DUP who really don’t have a sense of humour between them held a press conference to make it clear that they would prefer not to be known as ‘the C.U.N.T. for Brexit’
“It is neither big nor clever to use that acronym,” said a representative for the Conservative Unionist Negotiation Team for Brexit.
“And I know I can rely on the British people’s famous respect for authority and dislike of childish humour to ensure that we will only ever be known as the Conservative Unionist Negotiation Team for Brexit and not…that acronym.”
At this point, a reporter in the audience stifled a giggle as he asked the representative for the C.U.N.T. for Brexit to confirm the acronym.
The representative refused to answer and left the stage muttering darkly about the ‘bloody puerile proles’ to laughter from the assembled press.
However, amongst the public, the acronym had not really been picked up.
“To be honest, I didn’t realise C**ts for Brexit was an acronym,” said Simon Williams, a man, earlier.
“It just seemed like a reasonable thing to refer to them as.”
