The legal advice for Brexit is not a riveting read.

The government finally published the legal advice for Brexit today after being told they had to and it was bloody naughty that they hadn’t already.

However, the document is not the book-at-bedtime thrill ride people were promised.

“Lol no lol no lol no lol no lol no lol no,” summarised journalist, Simon Williams.

“That’s all it says, for two hundred pages. Granted, it’s an accurate assessment of the situation but one expects a bit more in the way of padding.

“In terms of literature, it’s a bit worse than anything by Tom Clancy and a bit better than anything by Dan Brown.

“I guess it’s good to have something that the children can appreciate as well, if nothing else.”

A spokesperson for the government’s legal team said, “We racked our brains for ways to further flesh out the situation, but honestly we felt that ‘lol no’ really did sum up everything required.”

“So we just repeated ourselves to max out the word count, much in the same way a satire writer might do having exhausted a joke in the opening few lines of an article.

“If this strategy has offended anybody then we are very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very sorry indeed.”
