Shadow Minister for "Command and Control"

Labour MP Emma Reynolds sparked outrage last night at an Oxford Union debate. The YBF sponsored event discussing whether the channel was wider than the Atlantic gave the Shadow Junior Foreign Office Minister a chance to share some of her more extreme views on China.

Facing Dan Hannan at the dispatch box, Reynolds said “China’s control and command approach is something to be admired”. UKIP’s Lord Monckton, also taking party in the debate, nearly had a coronary and the speaker had to quell the audible outrage of room. Does her boss Yvette agree with her stance?
