From a correspondent
A Tory MP has given us her definition of democracy (since deleted):
From this I have to surmise that elected MPs and the Prime Minister are the most intelligent beings on this planet. Just by being elected (especially if they are Tory, of course) they are automatically more clever than any and every scientist, doctor, professor, etc.
My first thought? “Beam me up Scottie” – to any planet other than this one! Although, on reflection, maybe just beam me up to Amersham and Chesham or North Shropshire where some sense of reality may be emerging on THIS planet!
