Conservative MP Grant Shapps unwittingly invited questions about how he washes his coffee cups after posting a picture of himself reading the Prime Minister’s draft Brexit deal.

The former Tory chairman, MP for Welwyn Hatfield, shared the following image of himself having read the 585-page withdrawal document.

“VERDICT: after 585 pages and copious cups of coffee, this #WithdrawalAgreement looks v. problematic,” Shapps wrote.

He went on to suggest how the deal could be improved, but Twitter users seemed more interested in the coffee cups featured in the picture.

Some questioned the logic behind using a different mug for each coffee…

… while others noticed the mugs themselves look particularly clean.

Shapps replied by saying the dishwasher is broken and he is waiting for a part from Germany to arrive.

But that didn’t wash with everyone…
