BREAKING: MPs in the House of Commons vote, by a majority of 414 to 201, to eat it too

In a historic decision, the UK’s representatives have elected to forward a bill that would see them eat the cake too.

 

This further complicates the Governments job of handling the situation due to a vote heald earlier today that saw a majority vote by 347 to 303 to have the cake.

 

Commentators have described the result as “baffling”, “contradictory” and “satirical, I suppose”.

 

This now means that Prime Minister Theresa May will have to return to the owners of the cake to revise a deal that would see the UK both having and eating cake.

 

Downing street has said that the government is still making preparations for a no-cake scenario which is similar to the eating cake option, with the difference of the cake being laced with polonium.

This has been a Fake News article (that's right, this isn't real) by Kieran Macfadzean.
