As news spread that civil servants in the Department for Exiting the EU were being asked to “do the hokey cokey” over a no-deal Brexit, other Government departments were keen to announce their own.
“With ever closer links to the US following Brexit”, declared Environment secretary Michael Gove, “we thought The Funky Chicken best summed up that chlorinated future.”
The full list is still awaited but NewsBiscuit can reveal the confirmed departmental dances.
Department of Justice – The Hustle
Department for Business – Headbanging
Department for Culture – Improvised Tribal-Style Belly Dancing
Department for Education – Moonwalk
The cabinet department has for years under Teresa May lead the country using The Robot but likely successor Boris Johnson is believed to favour swinging.
Brexit Party leader, Nigel Farage, interjected, “The people have voted to take back control and I think that’s a clear indication that what they want is a year on year increase in Morris Dancing. What? Very kind, pint of best then.”
Transport secretary Chris Grayling added, “Some might have expected us to plump for The Loco-Motion but I insisted on The Hitch Hike”.
