Welsh politician Andrew RT Davies had an amazing slip of the tongue Tuesday as he was wrapping up a speech about Brexit, referring to the European Union split as “breakfast.”
“Mark my words,” the Conservative leader said sternly. “We will make breakfast — Brexit — a success.
“Well that’s one word that wasn’t meant to come out like that was it?” he added to laughter.
The remark came at the end of his speech calling for greater scrutiny of the Labour-controlled government, reports BBC News. Davies charged the party with being out of touch with the majority of citizens who voted for Brexit.
Davies is not the first politician to refer to Brexit as breakfast. Terence Smith, who is the youngest mayor in Britain, has also confused the two. A vine tweeted by an editor at The Sun captures the blunder on repeat. “To help secure a future for post-breakfast, post-Brexit reality,” Smith says.
