It’s easily done. The leader of the Welsh Conservative Party dramatically declared today from the stage of the party’s conference that the United Kingdom will make “breakfast” a success.
He meant to say “Brexit”.
Speaking in Birmingham this morning, Andrew RT Davies AM said the EU referendum result presented Wales with an “opportunity to build a bold new future”.
“To wrest control from those who wish Brexit to fail just so they can say ‘I told you so’,” he told the party faithful.
“Countries are not built on soundbites, navel gazing or empty promises. Countries are built by those who role up their sleeves, knuckle down and get on with the job.
“Working together with our excellent new prime minister, Theresa May we WILL make Brexit a success,” he predicted.
Davies added with flair: “And conference mark my words. we WILL make breakfast.”
The embarrassed Welsh Assembly member, realising his mistake, added: “That’s one word that wasn’t meant to come out like that was it. I’ll have a word with the autocue at the back.”
It was inevitable really.
