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


Theresa May comedy bafta

Theresa May has secured a Bafta for her hilarious unscripted comedy series 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 the gathered press, “We were impressed with how Theresa May managed to write and film a series 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 just 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 that has entertained an entire nation!”

Fellow judge Christoper James piped up, “We are always looking for comedy performers who are willing to try something new, and the format of The Brexit Negotiations was another brilliant masterstroke – who would have thought to film a documentary in real-time, and then to release it in segments on the nation’s news channels – it is truly groundbreaking.

“Honestly, this show could run for several years at this rate.”
