@JamesDelingpole This all comes down to your arrogance. You have assumed superiority over everyone for so long you started to believe your own bullshit, and now when it comes to the real business, it turns out your ideology gets you nowhere in the real world. A humiliation much deserved.
@JamesDelingpole Like all the rest of the Brexiters you thought you could wing it without knowing your subject. You thought you could bloviate about "fwee twade" and everyone would be impressed. Turns out just about everyone in the debate knows more than you do.
@JamesDelingpole And now you're scrabbling for excuses, you really don't have any. There were plenty of places you could have looked but working for Breinfart means you have to toe the line and keep up with the tribal narrative. Your tribe values conformity over knowledge.
@JamesDelingpole And you can't say you weren't warned. You've known where the real expertise has been all along. But no, it's unfashionable to know what you're a talking about in the bubble. Knowing your shit is just for the lower orders. Ignorance is a status symbol.
@JamesDelingpole While you've spent the last four years grunting about the EUSSR, the rest of the world has been reading up on non tariff barriers, regulatory systems and WTO rules. You're not even out of the starting gate. Just a silly arrogant little man with a worthless opinion.
@JamesDelingpole What's more disgusting is you don't even see this as a consequence of a lack of knowledge. To you it's just a failure to brush up on the tribal scriptures before going on air. You're just a mouthpiece for the tribe. And a lazy incompetent one at that.
@JamesDelingpole Depressingly, this also tells us youre not even up on Brexit as a whole. The trade argument was always a loser. If we view it solely in terms of trade then short of controlling our external relationships, there isn't a credible argument for leaving the EU. This is about democracy
@JamesDelingpole But then I seem to recall at one point you made the conscious decision to abandon intellectual inquiry precisely because Breitbart was willing to pay the bills. Well this is the consequence. You are now a liability to the cause you took up.
@JamesDelingpole And though it's a waste of time me pointing this out, the MFN point you were so completely demolished on is entirely correct. Andrew Neil’s case against No Deal Brexit was not at all "bollocks".

@JamesDelingpole There was a time when you would have applied your own intellect. The problem for you, having aligned yourself with the kiptard grunters, is that any acknowledgement of reality makes you a heretic. So now your only recourse is to recite scripture. And you're not even good at that.
@JamesDelingpole In the end you don't get to blame Andrew Neil or your lack of preparation or the pressure you were under. This is ultimately the consequence of your ignorance - which is a path you set down on the moment you decided to become a professional propagandist. You chose to be ignorant.
@JamesDelingpole This is all born of your teenage libertarianism. a phase most people grow out of. But being a paid up member of the politico-media bubble, you put yourself in suspended animation. Like your ERG pals, reality just slipped you by.
