3. Did somebody say "embarrassing"?

No, this isn't from The Onion:

Tory minister defends 'cover-up' of damning leaked Brexit report by saying government forecasts are ALWAYS WRONG

A Tory minister has prompted bafflement by saying every single forecast his own government has ever made of anything is wrong.

Steve Baker made the jaw-dropping announcement to deflect accusations he'd overseen a "stinking cover-up" of damning analysis of Brexit.

...

Furious MPs hauled Brexit minister Mr Baker to the House of Commons for an urgent debate today where he claimed he'd only seen the report this morning - 12 hours after it was published.

...

And he read a quote to MPs that declared: "The only purpose of economic forecasting was to make astrology look respectable."
