Divestment of Dignity

I am not, on balance, a supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, as such.

But the idea that the ludicrous Matthew "Matt" Hancock, who could not conceivably be elected to a local council, a far harder thing than to hold on to a safe seat in Parliament, ought to presume to compel his betters to purchase goods from certain foreign countries?

That idea would be laughable, if it were not going to happen in actual fact.

Notice that Hancock has travelled to a foreign country, the one that stands to benefit, in order to announce this domestic policy.

So much for national sovereignty. So much for Parliament. So much even for basic self-respect.
