Andrew Davies, a politician from Wales, was talking about Britain's exit from the E.U. At a key point in his speech, his stomach took over: "Mark my words. We will make breakfast — Brexit a success."

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Andrew Davies, a conservative politician from Wales, was talking about Britain's exit from the European Union.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

ANDREW DAVIES: We will make Brexit a success.

GREENE: Big moment in the speech, and his stomach took over.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

DAVIES: Mark my words - we will make breakfast - Brexit a success.

GREENE: A good meal in the morning - something all sides can agree on. One Twitter user transformed Davies into Tony the Tiger, or maybe it should be Tory the Tiger. It's MORNING EDITION.
