When referencing the piece he claimed that the Labour party was effectively 'shredding the votes of 17.4 million people.'
Some members will remember the Banksy painting that went through the shredder. Indeed, my honourable friend the member for Ribble Valley, Mr Evans, had it on his Christmas card.
The reality of the leader of the opposition’s approach this week is that he is shredding the votes of 17.4 million people by turning his back on the referendum, going back on his word in his own manifesto and failing to listen even to his own front benchers.
Someone really should have told him that the value of that painting increased once it had been destroyed...
