Theresa May wins Bafta for her comedy documentary ‘Brexit Deal negotiations’


Theresa May Bafta win

Theresa May has secured a Bafta for her hilarious comedy documentary about her negotiations with the European Union.

The Prime Minister, who directed, wrote and starred in the brilliant farce picked up the gong yesterday and genuinely smiled for the first time in three years.

Bafta judge Simon Williams explained their decision, telling press, “We were impressed with how Theresa May managed to write and film a documentary that was both terrifying and laugh out loud funny in equal measure.

“The constant juxtaposition of footage of herself standing outside Downing Street firmly promising this and that, followed by footage the next day of her being roundly ignored in Brussels was a stroke of genius.

“And then to repeatedly have her deal slapped down in parliament and yet still take the same deal back to the EU having been told numerous times that they won’t change their position either was brilliant.

“It’s like, we’re rumbling towards the cliff-edge of a no-deal Brexit, which is scary, but look, here she is dancing again. Simply genius story-telling!”

Fellow judge Christoper James piped up, “The format is brilliant too – to film a documentary in real-time, as it were, and release it in segments on the news is quite groundbreaking.

“It could run for several years at this rate.”
