Andrew capturing the right-wing zeitgeist here by calling for public flogging and thus cementing his reputation as a total crackpot.

One of his justifications, genuinely, is that flogging is “earthy”. I shit you not. “Earthy” FFS!
What the hell is wrong with people? Is there some sort of secret prize for the Tory with the idea most offensive to basic humanvdecency and dignity? An arms race of ignorant populist twattery?
The idea that the kind of country they want is one where the state issues an official rule-book on exactly how its agents should hold somebody down and beat them as they scream.
While people watch, braying.
But, and here’s the kicker, while state-sanctioned beatings are fine, EU-wide limits on the power usage of vacuum cleaners are a vicious affront to freedom and everything that is good.
Earthy. Really. Fucking earthy.
