John Redwood: To him, Brexit is about YOU doing what you’re told. So much for taking back our freedom.

How kind of John Redwood to give us all a glimpse of the kind of despotism Tories want to inflict on us all – by trying to inflict it on business bosses first.

He has told company executives that they will pay a “very dear economic and financial price” if they dare to criticise the decision to leave the European Union.

So I’d like to encourage the same bosses to do the exact opposite – starting by exposing Redwood as the windbag he is.

As for the rest of us – let’s ask prime minister Theresa May the question posed on Twitter by Professor Ian Donald: “How is it acceptable for one of your MPs to threaten people with losing their jobs if they are pro-EU? Do you ignore the appalling behaviour of back benchers too?”

We know, now, that Leave only won with the help of vote-rigging internet companies, so people like Redwood have absolutely no business trying to bully anyone.

Let’s all look into ways we can do to him what he’s threatening to do to us.

John Redwood has vowed to punish businesses who speak out in favour of Britain remaining in the European Union.

Mr Redwood, one the most senior Tory Eurosceptics, said companies who did not stay silent on the country’s EU membership would pay a “very dear economic and financial price”.

Chief executives who decide to take a corporate position on the issue could lose their jobs while those campaigning against membership would ensure there were financial consequences, Mr Redwood warned.

The former Welsh secretary demanded firms “keep out” of the debate and “beware” not to “meddle in politics”.

Mr Redwood told a fringe event about Britain’s place in the EU that “the only answer for all concerned is for big business to keep out and not express a corporate view”.
