11 cutting reactions to a Brexiter saying Boris Johnson will “drain the swamp”
Prominent Leave campaigner Andy Wigmore has graced our web pages on more than one occasion with his questionable life choices, from criticising David Lammy’s work history without googling David Lammy’s work history, to suggesting David Lammy might have eaten Diane Abbott. Can anybody see a pattern here? He recently managed to get himself onto the wrong side of a Twitter roasting with this tweet:
It was you and Blair that politicised our once independent civil service @campbellclaret it’s now filled with dripping wet leftie civil activists, your fault and when @BorisJohnson gets the top job we will drain the swamp, ridding the CS of types like @KimDarroch https://t.co/PXy4U2T0Jr

“Drain the swamp”? Really? He’ll be wearing ‘MUKGA’ baseball caps and blathering on about Jeremy Hunt’s emails before we know it. Accordingly, Twitter commenced to unpick his comment.
Mate, you are the swamp!
Our Civil service are just desperately doing their job, which is to protect the people of the UK, not your business interests.

These people think that anyone who isn't a sociopath is a "leftie" Just wanting things to be better and to look after each other more is now considered a weakness to sneer at.

Wigmore would definitely be the kind of shitehawk who'd collude with the enemy during a War. Innit https://t.co/pokiCydP7s

This is worth noting before it doubtless gets deleted or “explained away”. https://t.co/Q33qddo3iJ

Is "draining the swamp" really the best metaphor to use when the last human to make that promise proceeded to fill all positions of authority with even fouler dregs?

"We"? As someone who is not a @Conservatives MP or a member of the govt could you please clarify what role you envisage having in a Johnson-led government?

I swear every time I see a brexiteer tweet something like this, the location of the tweet is always somewhere in the EU. EVERY TIME.

Drain swamp, little attention to detail, misogyny, perceived as a bit of an idiot, not to mention the barnet.
He really is Trump's 'Mini Me'.

Twitter user, @StatisticSingh gave us a little tip which we can confirm works perfectly.
You have to read this in a Gollum voice to really appreciate it, lads.
