Downing St had donuts delivered under armed guard – our favourite sugar-coated takedowns
As Theresa May – and the rest of the country – awaits the House of Commons’ ‘meaningful vote’ on her so-called deal to leave the EU, this really did happen outside Downing Street.

Donuts. Delivered by a police officer carrying a very big gun.
And if you thought the moment might prompt lots of funny responses, then you’d be right.

Don't want to alarm anyone but the people responsible for getting us food if there's no deal are already guarding their donuts with a machine gunpic.twitter.com/LSbX1AUbiU

This is how all donuts will have to be transported in the event of no deal. pic.twitter.com/O2ZFrpcQL9

And then there was this.
Someone in Downing St has called in a big box of Kristen Kreme donuts this morning – desperate times and all that, quite understandable

There are enough donuts in Downing Street already. pic.twitter.com/6omquX3CLK
