Iain Duncan Smith was just owned by this former WTO boss in the most brutal fashion (and he didn’t say a word)
Iain Duncan Smith was back on the telly today telling everyone why Brexit is pretty straightforward, actually, Northern Ireland border and all.
Which we normally wouldn’t bother you with, were it not for the rather extraordinary response of former World Trade Organisation director general Pascal Lamy.
No words were required because, well, have a watch for yourself …

We’ve never seen a better takedown of IDS (and we’ve seen a few).
I must have written thousands & spoken millions of words about Brexit & prominent Brexiters. Lamy here does a *much* better job in six seconds of mime. Quite humbling, really. https://t.co/Ivn8odSduD

Iain Duncan Smith: "I never said [Brexit] was going to be simple,… but it could have been a lot easier"

I believe this is the international sign language for 'away with the fairies'

Pascal Lamy's gesture is perfect – just replay it whenever a Brexiteer is speaking. https://t.co/GemjqQ8V4D

He's not impressed because IDS lies thru his teeth. Brexiters often quote WTO rules hoping Joe Public won't have a clue what their talking about, so fake' facts' go unchallenged. @Lamy as ex WTO Chief showed what a vile, liar & manipulator of facts IDS is!!

Please sign the petition to have Pascal Lamy do sign language interpretation every time a Brexit rent-a-gob does a brainfart on national telly. pic.twitter.com/JRu9MgVRCv
