Remainers Reject Adonis ‘Sack Brillo’ Demand

Brexit is sending a lot of previously reasonable and rational people round the twist. Andrew Adonis is the latest, yesterday demanding that Andrew Neil is sacked and bizarrely claiming that Brexiters “control” the BBC. Adonis’ hysterical tweets were rejected by his fellow Remainers, who called him “daft”, “ridiculous” and “preposterous” and defended Brillo against accusations of bias.

Don’t imagine the many, many pro-Remain BBC journalists are particularly keen on the idea either. Adonis is in danger of going the full A.C. Grayling, it’s remarkable he still chairs the government’s Infrastructure Commission…

Quote of the Day

“After university, I tried and failed to get a job as a journalist — and so I became the Chancellor of the Exchequer instead. And when I tried and failed to stop Britain voting to leave the EU, I stopped being Chancellor and became a newspaper editor instead. I’d had enough of the fake news, the spin and fiddled expenses of politics. So I thought I’d try journalism instead.”
