Watch Krishnan Guru-Murthy give a Brexiter MP the most savage introduction of all time
Conservative MP Ben Bradley’s flirtations with the headlines have been a dip into the political theatre of the absurd. There was that time he said poor people should get vasectomies, and when he claimed Bird Box was effectively No Deal Brexit scaremongering, for example. He was also forced to apologise after accusing Jeremy Corbyn of selling secrets to Communist spies – because that’s a normal thing for people to say.
When he was invited to talk on camera with Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy about the latest Brexit developments, he can’t have been expecting this savage burn of an introduction.

Krishnan: He voted to remain, then became a Brexiteer, then voted against the deal, then voted for the deal, then said he’d struggle to back the deal but now says he will back the deal. Ben Bradley, why do you get to change your mind?
Ben Bradley: I haven’t changed my mind.
The spark of realisation on the MP’s face as the penny dropped was something special, and there are further high spots in the full version, which you can watch here. We weren’t the only ones to enjoy the spectacle.

"I haven't changed my mind" is a quote for the ages after a cue up like that! https://t.co/TejEUIcSvH

The "will of the people"is a one off deal, the will of the MP is as changeable as an expenses claim. https://t.co/cFWcQNHTvt

Worth watching @krishgm introducing Tory MP Ben Bradley. It’s one of the finest TV intros I’ve seen in a long, long time. And encapsulates the self-interested nonsense that got us here perfectly https://t.co/qGVpRzVgg9
