Nadine Dorries seriously just complained that the Brexit deal gives us "no MEPs, no commissioner, no votes". 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️ #skynews

Nadine, I say this with genuine admiration. I did not think you could sound any more ill-informed or self-contradictory than you already have. But you have surpassed yourself. I would laugh but if its true we get the representatives we deserve then we are in deep trouble.

Nadine Dorries seems to imply that there's another Brexit where we get MEPs and Comnissioners. It's so incredibly off the scale stupid. https://t.co/G4fq5Ab9FJ

Who could possibly have foreseen that leaving the EU would mean we had no MEPs or commissioner???? https://t.co/p4Se9mZT3T

Has somebody compiled a list of unexpected things learned as a result of Brexit? You know, like:
* The Dover-Calais route is quite important for U.K. trade (discovered by Dominic Raab)
* Being out of the EU means having no MEPs (discovered by Nadine Dorries)

Jokes aside, this is a major problem with our electoral system. Safe seats mean a bin bag with a face on would win in constituencies like Dorries’ so there’s no weeding out of dangerously dim bulbs. https://t.co/TybUDkTh1K
