A group of Brexiters is calling itself “the Grand Wizards” and it’s a very bad idea – 19 savage owns

On Sunday, a group of MPs went to the Prime Minister’s country residence, Chequers, amidst rumours that they were there to put pressure on her to resign. Whether they lost their bottle when they saw her wield a carving knife over the swan course, or they had simply spread the rumours to take attention away from a certain massive march, we may never know. As she’s still clinging onto power like a bargain hunter with a half-price telly at the sales, we can be sure she wasn’t persuaded.

Those present included:
Iain Duncan Smith, who turned up in a sports car –

Jacob Rees-Mogg, who brought his clone son –

Boris Johnson, who was planning on writing himself into the Bible –

Also present were Dominic Raab, David Davis, Michael Gove and several others. According to the BBC’s chief political correspondent, Laura Kuenssberg, the group have given themselves the nickname, “The Grand Wizards”, which is troublesome for two reasons:

1. They aren’t a gang of 8-year-olds having secret meetings in a treehouse with “No Girls Allowed” nailed to the door,

and – more importantly –

2. “Grand Wizard” is a title given to the head of the Ku Klux Klan.

Twitter couldn’t quite believe the group of right-wing men had named themselves after a group of white-ring men. These are some of the most savage owns.
