Larry and Paul’s ‘Real Daily Briefing’ hilariously captures the art of saying nothing in a sincere voice
Yet again, Larry and Paul have captured the essence of a Downing Street briefing, with a sketch that contains as few facts as the real one, but – unlike most government updates – is absolutely unmissable.
The briefing bot may have had a tear duct error, but we haven’t – we’re just not sure whether they’re tears of laughter or despair.
They shared the sketch to Twitter, too.
BREAKING: Today’s Government #RealDailyBriefing.

You know how they say every cloud has a silver lining? Well, that’s what these briefings are.
