I noticed the following today on Twitter:
Yesterday I mentioned, as a result of a quote attributed to Thomas Sowell, that our political class are unfit for office in that they may have made a name for themselves in whatever field they worked, prior to becoming a politician, but once having become one they exhibit a total lack of knowledge about national and world affairs.
Both Leave and Remain campaigns made such outrageous and ridiculous statements during the Referendum period that I quickly lost interest in said statements. If Redwood believed, as it seems did most MPs, that leaving the European Union meant leaving the Single Market and Customs Union then on the same basis presumably had either campaign suggested that leaving the European Union meant MPs should stick their heads in a gas oven, Redwood and others would have complied? If only MPs were so willing to comply with the requests of their electorate – but I digress.
