Brexit isn’t about xenophobia, but let’s try to make a club for white English speaking countries that are all very far apart, says David Davis.
His excellency the Minister for Brexit told reporters: “It is wrong for 400 million Europeans to have the right to come to Britain, but at the same time it is definitely alright for 300 million Americans, 35 million Canadians, 23 million Australians and 5 million New Zealanders to be given the right to come here instead.”
“The government now accepts that free movement of people is a necessary condition for the new trade deals we plan to establish with some of our former colonies, all of which contain the good type of foreigners that do not frighten middle aged Daily Mail readers.”
Mr Davis continued: “Brexit is not about xenophobia, and never has been. People voted to Leave the EU with their eyes wide open, completely aware of the cynical bait and switch scam that I and others were about to pull.”
“It is deeply offensive to the millions of people who voted Leave to suggest that they were fooled by my campaign of barefaced lies.”
