The wait is finally over: David Davis has arrived in Brussels for the first day of Brexit talks.
On arrival, the Brexit Secretary said: “We are starting this negotiation in a positive and constructive tone, determined to build a strong and special partnership between ourselves and our European allies and friends for the future.”
But over on Twitter, people were imagining what that arrival really looked like.

People aren’t envious of him.
If you're dreading work tomorrow, bear in mind David Davis will be spending the morning being told to piss off in six different languages.

And the jokes really sum up how the British people are feeling as these important negotiations begin.
Glad we've got a "strong and stable" government going into Brexit talks.

Today an unformed govt in total disarray, facing chaos and massive events on all fronts, commences talks on Brexit. Sitting comfortably?
