Lord Frost’s message to the newly honoured Brexit negotiators got the takedowns it deserved
Not everyone thinks the British honours system is fit for purpose, with objections ranging from the references to the British Empire to whether everyone who gets an honour actually deserves it.
With the New Year’s Honours list now public, Brexit negotiator Sir David Frost tweeted his delight at a certain set of recipients.
This is the same Lord Frost who has devoted his recent life to complaining about the Brexit deal negotiated by that team – and himself.

The responses made a lot more sense than the tweet.

Hey everyone, I just spent a year telling you the brilliant agreement I negotiated is actually dogshit, and then resigned because its obvious there's no solution to the problem I caused.

We hope this response from @Paper_Polly cleared up Sir David’s confusion.
It’s the first of January, not April.
