The Article 50 letter has been delivered and everyone is making the same joke


We Brits never miss an opportunity for a moan.

The UK’s permanent representative to the EU, Sir Tim Barrow, hand-delivered Theresa May’s Article 50 declaration to European Council president Donald Tusk in Brussels.

In the letter, May said: “We are leaving the European Union, but we are not leaving Europe – and we want to remain committed partners and allies to our friends across the continent.”

Brits marvelled at the speed of the letter’s delivery in Brussels, considering it was only signed last night. They also took the opportunity to gripe at their own delivery woes.

Yodel wasn’t the only delivery service in for a kicking. Royal Mail was also made the butt of the joke.

There was also speculation about who could have delivered the letter so quickly. We think it could only have been one man.
