Priti Patel’s anti-free movement speech whipped the Tories into a frenzy – the only 9 reactions you need
Home Secretary Priti Patel made her Conservative Party Conference speech, on Tuesday, outlining how she will end freedom of movement and introduce a points-based system, parroting Nigel Farage’s endless cry from the Leave campaign. She added a little swipe at the “North London metropolitan elite”, and none of it has gone down well.
"This daughter of immigrants needs no lectures from the north London, metropolitan, liberal elite."

We really thought these reactions needed to be shared.

The problem with Priti Patel’s dog-whistle is that those who hear it will never love her as much as she wants them to. https://t.co/OtkQ7Uhafy

Priti Patel joins the cabinet ministers singling out north london liberals for attack. But what about the poor old south London liberals, what have they done to deserve the cold shoulder.

Everyone: Thunderous applause is the worst possible reaction to that speech.
James Delingpole: Hold my beer.
Priti is so achingly sound. And hot too! And, best of all, so hated by all the right people. She is the reincarnation of Margaret Thatcher. https://t.co/tfMg0nQsO9
