News Item:  Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan met a crushing defeat, losing
by 230 votes (432 to 202), in the British parliament.  Many in her own party voted
against her deal.

I may be a country mongrel but I love the common dogs of this world and will fight for
them no matter where in this world.  Madam Prime Minister, you are one pedigreed
bull terrier, rich and greedy and you can't go on biting the paws that feed you ...

That's an insult not worthy of the leader of the opposition.  I always leave something
for mongrels.  I believe in the trickle-down theory.  Give us enough and we'll leave
something for you.  It's the way of nature.

The way of nature ... Ha!  That German Schnauzer is all over you, and a few sniffs of
your backside from that French poodle and you lie down wagging your tail.  Some
British bull terrier!

I'll have you know, a bull terrier never gives up, and I got you the best Brexit deal
staying in the customs union and ...

Is that why it was voted down?  Even the pedigreed ponces in your party voted
against it?

That's why I have a plan B.  I don't give up.

No, you don't!  It's that French poodle again?  Do I notice a slight drool every time I
mention him?

Oh, yeah!  That Mexican chihuahua has got you thinking of nothing else ... Woof!
