James Brokenshire has been slammed after a picture has emerged of his four ovens. Housing minister James Brokenshire denies he has four ovens…
…he actually has twelve, if you count the other two houses he owns.
A source close to Mr Brokenshire told The Mirror that he did not have four ovens, simply ‘two, normal double ovens.’
Although there may be more now as the source heard that they may have bread. (Oh come on! At least I avoided the gag about a talking sauce!)
The confusion over the number of cookers may have arisen from the number of Mr Brokenshire’s house staff that are employed to cook his meals.
James Brokenshire has thanked Diane Abbott for her offer to come round to his house to count the ovens, but no one can honestly see how that will help the situation.
In response to being slammed for the appliances, Mr Brokenshire took to Twitter to post a photo of him holding a Victoria sponge cake as he stands in front of his ovens. One eagle-eyed Twitter user spotted it was the same picture he posted four years ago.
So it turns out he can neither have his cake or eat it.
