A Eurosceptic MP said this about Brexit and these 6 replies are all that’s required
Here’s Eurosceptic MP and former Cabinet minister Priti Patel giving her hot take on the state of Brexit right now.
This is no longer an argument about whether Brexit was a good idea but is about democracy & standing by the democratic decision made by the people. The public want to know that their political leaders will stay true to the promise made to them that Brexit means Brexit. https://t.co/OFcPLg7LQ0

And the responses are so satisfying it’s almost worth the price of leaving the EU.
‘It is clearly an indescribably & irredeemably bad idea but it is essential we carry on with it because the alternative is admitting my own weapons grade idiocy & begging forgiveness for inflicting so much utterly unnecessary harm on the entire country.’ https://t.co/oTaqQrpq8H

Halfwit MP admits Brexit is a terrible idea and will ruin Britain but suggests it must go ahead anyway so as not to hurt the feelings of people who were conned. Paraphrasing only a minimal amount :/ https://t.co/bu4pGSfABj

In other words it is an unpolishable turd, there is nothing we can do to stop it being a disaster, but because we lied about how great it would be we are going to have to live with it https://t.co/5COfLx54k5

Forgive me for saying so, Priti Patel, but you're very stupid indeed. Whether or not it's a good idea is absolutely central. If it isn't, it follows that rational people would no longer want it, even if they once did. If they want it knowing that it's a bad idea, they're not sane https://t.co/0YxJyMLNMg

Bingo. We long suspected we’d get to this stage where proponents stop pretending Brexit is good & the argument becomes that we simply *have to* now.
OK. Let’s talk democracy. If the public no longer want Brexit, do they have the right to ditch it? And who decides? https://t.co/2ACB3Y4OkW

This is literally where their argument now sits. "We all know it'll be shit but it's your fault, you voted for it". What charlatans we elected. https://t.co/KgPYfBLjoW

And if you think you know Priti Patel, you’re right. When she was still a Cabinet minister she did this.
