Re: Oh not again

Making everyone sensible an outlaw means you will only have the halfwits and the dimwits left on your side

Seeing as one could classify a large proportion of the electorate in that group* I think he'd be fine with that.

* I don't actually think that they are "halfwits and... dimwits", but there is a large group, possibly even the majority of people, who won't notice the idiocy of this plan, won't listen to those who actually understand the problems, and will either just take the words of Dave as read, or will continue voting for "their party" as they always have done. I don't believe that the majority of voters study the policies of those they are voting for in detail or the real effects of them (sometimes because they just don't believe they'll do what they've said anyway, with good reason), and just take a punt based on their gut feeling.
