At the start, Timothy felt he had been depermed, so intense was the barracking he received until little Johnny Milkman, The Speaker, intervened forcefully, threatening to gyve the most frequent offenders and insisted that the Secretary of State be given a respectful hearing, as each Honourable Member would expect when it was his, or her, turn to ask questions, and after giving way several times to allow supporters of The Dame's Proposal to speak, while refusing opponents' similar opportunities, and feeling rather pleased with himself, Timothy was happy to indulge in a little repartee with Members of the Opposition and acquitted himself so well that – with the aid of Sir Wilfred's voice in his ear, which no longer seemed to jinx him, indeed, it had become one with his own thinking – and eschewing, along with The Speaker, those short breaks for elevenses, luncheon, tiffin and supper, and even toilet visits, he spoke without repetition, hesitation or deviation for a full fifteen hours, immuring the House within it's Chamber, and even requiring that the clocks be stopped at midnight so that the entire proceedings could be contained within a single, calendar, day, meaning of course that both Hansard and Questions, Questions, known affectionately as QQ, missed their deadlines and even then, when he was just winding up before his big finish and feeling much more perite than when he had started, he placed his notes on the bench behind himself and turned square on to the Opposition Front Bench and began to ad lib; he adopted the bearing of a raisonneur, determined to put his own stamp on the speech as effectively as possible, to take ownership – even though it was always The Dame's, so let his jacket fall open and stuck his thumbs in his braces and pulled on them dramatically, which had a curious effect on those nearest to him across the Despatch Boxes; one pointed, then another, whispers were exchanged and wondering faces began to smile, to smirk, to grin and then to laugh uproariously; which was when Sir Wilfred’s voice spoke urgently in is ear: "let go of your braces, man, and button your jacket up!" but Timothy was too elated and determined to finish his speech on an upbeat; pulling dramatically on his braces he roared above the noise: "and That is what Brexit Means!" in The Bunker, all eyes were fixed on the central TV screen, showing the image currently being broadcast, and from the image of Michaelmas-Daisy, from waist to just above his head, the camera zoomed on on the stripes across his braces, which when he pulled them forward became what they quite distinctly were – blackletter words, one above the other, repeated down each strap and with each pull, perfectly legible; by now the serried ranks of the Opposition were chanting in time with Timothy, and some of his own party Members, prompted by Opposition Members holding up and pointing to their phones and tablets, had found the Parliament Channel and had begun chanting too; which was when little Pip Maybe-Maybenot, the PM's diminutive and petite husband had trotted into the Cabinet Office and was holding up his own phone – he stopped when he saw the wide-screen shots on the wall-mounted TVs in the office and asked, in an imperious voice: "why is that chap wearing my braces?" and Sir Wilfred turned to face him: "your braces, Mr Maybe-Maybenot? what makes you think they're your braces?" and Pip grinned mischievously: "cos The Dame had 'em made specially for me – jolly good ain't they?" and a faint memory from Referendum Day, when Old Davie and Young Georgie Porgie still held sway in The Bunker, and seeing Little Pip visiting and showing off his brand new braces, with the words:
BREXIT

MEANS
WREXIT

BREXIT

MEANS

WREXIT

BREXIT

MEANS

WREXIT

BREXIT

MEANS

WREXIT

and Sir Wilfred turned to Quentin: "where did you find them?" and Quentin said: "in Little Pip's dressing-up box under the stairs, you know, behind his rocking horse and Star Wars costume, but I never noticed it was actual words, it was just a cool jazzy pattern!"
