Michael Gove just put out the following statement in response to Jeremy Corbyn’s speech today:
Labour have confirmed that they are a threat to our national security, our economic security and to the security of every family in Britain.
I felt like I’d heard these words before and it gave me an eery feeling. One of my favourite films is The Manchurian Candidate, in which an entire US platoon are brainwashed and when asked to describe the platoon’s commander, automatically respond “Raymond Shaw is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known in my life.” Has something similar been done to Tory MPs? See what you think:
“So what do you think of Jeremy Corbyn?”
“Jeremy Corbyn is a threat to our national security, our economic security and to the security of every family in Britain.”
“Er, thanks Minister.”
Michael Fallon has also been afflicted. It’s not too dissimilar to this:
In the film, Raymond Shaw has been brainwashed to become an unwitting assassin. What have they done to Corbyn though? I think we should be told!
