As has happened to Hillary Clinton, Theresa May has been outed (via secret recordings) as employing double speak when addressing specific audiences.
As per the Guardian:
"Theresa May privately warned that companies would leave the UK if the country voted for Brexit during a secret audience with investment bankers a month before the EU referendum.Politicians more often than not "nuance" their speeches to suit their audience. Were it not for pesky modern technology these nuances could be hidden!
A recording of her remarks to Goldman Sachs, leaked to the Guardian, reveals she had numerous concerns about Britain leaving the EU. It contrasts with her nuanced public speeches, which dismayed remain campaigners before the vote in June."

As per the Telegraph:
"Labour has been landed with a £20,000 fine after failing to declare election spending during the 2015 General Election, including the £7,000 cost of the so-called 'Ed Stone'."Ed Stone, the gift that keeps on giving!

One of the unintended consequences of Brexit is the now looming shortage of Marmite, as Tesco stands off against Unilever (the British/Dutch consumer conglomerate) in a dispute over which company should pick up the costs of the fall in Sterling.
A cynic might say that this is simply an excuse by Unilever to try to increase their prices under the smokescreen of Brexit!
