Our favourite 13 responses to Theresa May’s very strange Brexit video
The government’s Brexit bill was passed through parliament after Theresa May used all her wit and cunning to see off a revolt by Tory MPs.
To celebrate, the so-called prime minister made this video to let everyone know what’s going on, except it had the unfortunate effect of posing more questions than answers (especially around the 34 second mark).

Woah. That was just freaky & unnerving. Particularly at the 34 second mark.
Nothing reassuring to see here. At all. https://t.co/z67S0v861K

You know that bit in manufactured pop band Westlife songs where they’d go up a key, get out of their stools and start walking forward for the emotional bit? 34 seconds in, our manufactured Prime Minister does the same. #youraisemeup https://t.co/7ZQ85k9FsZ

It’s like she’s being electrocuted while delivering key messages. https://t.co/ubRacP9D4J
