Here’s why George Eustace is this YouTuber’s ‘Fool of the Week’

Last Updated: March 5, 2023By Tags: , , , , ,

Some Tory Brexiteers don’t seem to have the brains they were born with.

Answering a question on whether Brexit is responsible for the UK’s “salad shortage”, former Environment Secretary (I’m not making this up!) George Eustice tried to evade the question by saying the UK is not holding up imports because it isn’t checking incoming freight carrying a number of named goods.

Not only was he negating the very reason we were told Brexit should happen – the UK can’t be “taking back control” if it isn’t actually exercising that control – but he was also telling potential smugglers exactly what they need to say they’re carrying, in order not to be searched at this country’s borders.

Maximilien Robespierre makes the point clearly in this video clip:

The Tories seem to be trying to turn the UK into a smuggler’s paradise. I wonder why.
