Dominic Raab has admitted that until recently he was unaware Britain is an island.
It had been assumed every member of the animal kingdom, never mind the United Kingdom, understood this.
The Brexit Secretary was explaining that he ‘hadn’t quite understood how particularly reliant Britain is on the Dover-Calais crossing’.
Raab may be trying to overtake Northern Secretary Karen Bradley who recently revealed she hadn’t realized nationalists don’t vote for unionist parties and vice versa.
Both are now thought to be neck and neck in the running for Westminster’s coveted Tory Imbecile of The Year award.
Raab is tonight reported to have joined the Brexit Omerta Gang (BOG) which includes David Davis, Michael Gove, Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Nigel Farrage.
Boggers are believed to have given their word to each other, not to explain to the public why Brexit is such a straightforward affair.
“So you see, it’s simply a matter of honour,” Raab said.
The member for Esher and Walton said he would be happy to explain everything in the future, when it’s too late.
