ALAN DUNCAN – A Conservative MP, has sparked OUTRAGE by saying Brexit was a “tantrum” by working-class voters about immigration.
The MP for Rutland and Melton made the comments at the Chicago Council of Global Affairs.
“The manner in which the campaign was fought stirred up a lot of sentiment amongst people that are not habitual voters, particularly on the issue of immigration. You could feel in the last 10 days of the campaign, traditional blue-collar urban Labour opinion going viral for leave. They were stirred up by an image of immigration, which made them angry and throw a bit of a tantrum. That was part of the chemistry that explains the result.”
If that is the case, Mr Duncan is accusing his OWN CONSTITUENTS of throwing a tantrum as Politicalite can reveal, the constituency that Mr Duncan represents VOTED TO LEAVE THE EU.
Brexit Results for Rutland and Melton:

Number of voters: 30,305
Remain: 11.353 (49.4%)

The Remoaning MP clearly has a case of severe hypocritical amnesia, as It is a well-known fact that Remoaners have been throwing the biggest political tantrum since Britain voted to leave. I think Pot needs to meet Kettle.
