A Brexiter was owned as they called into LBC radio.
He told the presenter Natasha Devon, he was having quite a great time in post-Brexit Britain: “I’m sat here drinking a French bottle of wine …I’ve ordered a new BMW to arrive in nine weeks’ time.
“Just been away …to Europe. Why is it so bad?”
Presenter Natasha Devon said: “Have you been looking at the headlines about the record number of people using foodbanks, including in-work people?”
“To drink a nice bottle of wine, to order a new BMW creates work and effort to make money to do that. And most of us do that in the real world when we trade between Europe and, as Nigel Lawson said, 92% of the rest of the world are not in Europe.”
“If you’re …one of the nurses that has to use a foodbank, or one of the teachers that is striking or, indeed, a member of the RMT union or anybody who has fallen on difficult times and can’t afford the kind of lifestyle that Jason describes – just bear in mind it’s because you’re not working hard enough and you didn’t believe in Brexit enough.”
