“Have cake and eat it” – do those five handwritten words on a government document spotted in the hands of a senior Tory official spell out a likely Brexit negotiating tactic?

The Daily Mail is alone among the newspapers in actually showing who was carrying the note – namely Julia Dockerill, an aide to Conservative MP Mark Field. While it is not clear whether she wrote the notes or was merely carrying them, the paper accompanies her picture with the headline “Oops! Has MP”s aide let slip Britain”s Brexit secrets?”.

There”s no pictorial evidence of the note on the front page of the Times, even though it leads on the same story. However, it does attempt to explain the “cake and eat it” reference, saying it reflects Prime Minister Theresa May”s insistence that Britain should get the best possible deal.
