Why David Davis before MPs today was basically the Monty Python cheese shop sketch
Several people have pointed out the similarities between David Davis giving evidence about Brexit to MPs today and the cheese shop sketch from Monty Python.
As pointed out by several observers, David Davis’s appearance in front of the Brexit select committee to explain the whereabouts of the impact assessments this morning is, essentially, Monte Python’s Cheese Shop Sketch without the music. @EricIdle https://t.co/wLSkKlgjPA

Here’s the whole of the Monty Python sketch.
And now David Davis.
David Davis has just admitted that his department have conducted no analysis on the economic impact of Brexit.
This is gross negligence. Our government are winging it on the biggest issue facing our country in 70 years. An appalling dereliction of duty.pic.twitter.com/vW6fXcnoo9
