Here’s why Dominic Raab’s Dover/Calais blunder really isn’t funny at all

Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab admitted he is spectacularly stupid in a speech last week.

Watch the following video to see what he said, and then we’ll discuss the meaning of his ignorant outburst:

“So… if he’d known how dependent we are on the Calais-Doover trade route, would he still have voted to Leave?” asked BBC political anchorman Andrew Neil; a good question that actually avoids the more pertinent point. Fortunately The Prole Star leapt right onto it:

“We hadn’t quite understood the full extent of how blisteringly dumb the man Theresa May put in charge of Brexit actually is.”

The chorus of ridicule that followed was most enjoyable. Cast your eyes over a few examples:

The Labour Party even brought out its handy-dandy guide to Mr Raab’s other opinions:

All of the above is a lot of fun, but:

None of it changes the fact that Dominic Raab is still the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.

He remains the UK’s chief negotiator with the EU on the manner of that exit.

And while our opinions of him are great fun to watch and read – none of them are going to change that.

We should not be laughing at this jackass. We should be terrified of him.

    Dover Calais is possibly the major passenger, and route for tax dodging smokers, route although the Chunnel is also a mojos means of travel as well, the major trade port is felixtowe, so maybe those desperate Eu collaborators who want total capitulation of a weak and malleable nation to the cabal in Brussels , need to get their nappies changed.

    It is said that there never has been anything remotely funny or humorous about Raab, he is just an arrogant, loathsome and extremely odious character,

    You couldn’t make it up: but they do keep making it up in the most unbelievable, spineless, cringeworthy manner imaginable and they get away with it every time. It’s just a never-ending tidal wave now of lies and deceit and gaffs with feet in mouths and heads up a***-****s and they call it ‘democratic parliament’ and everyone should have it they say and everyone deserves it all over the world and millions have died fighting for it and millions more have died from it after getting it and trying to inflict it on others who didn’t have it and didn’t want it: and who could blame them for that! Western democracy is s***e! Poppy anyone?
