Why did Joe Lycett write to Boris Johnson?

Always someone to make you laugh on social media, Joe Lycett wrote a ‘resignation email’ to Prime Minister Boris Johnson on behalf of Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries.

He posted the letter on Twitter during the flurry of actual resignation letters the Prime Minister received.

Writing as Nadine Dorries, Joe said: “It is with deep sadness that I have reached the conclusion this is not working.

I have made honest efforts to resolve the difficulties but it has become clear this morning that I am unable to proceed further.

“I would like to thank you for purchasing the PoptheTop automatic bottle opener for me last week.

“I was very grateful for this and for many things you have done for me, but I believe you have not purchased the correct bottle opener.

“I was looking to open a bottle of ‘I Heart Pinot Grigio’ I got from Tesco last night and discovered the PoptheTop bottle opener is actually only designed to open traditional beer bottles or Coca Cola or J20 apple and mango.

“It has been the honour of my life working in your government. I still believe and stand by you.

“But I would like you to reconsider and maybe purchase the Cuisinart CW050U Electric Wine Opener which is £50 in John Lewis and has a three year guarantee and free delivery, or Le Creuset LM250 Lever Corkscrew but that is £95 and looks confusing to use.

“Please replace the PoptheTop automatic bottle opener which doesn’t even work on the Grolsch bottles which have the metal clasp.”
