Maajid Nawaz Labels Caller A Hypocrite After Slating Tony Blair


This Brexiteer said anyone who voted for Tony Blair was thick and Maajid Nawaz tells him he's a hypocrite.

Caller Keith said he had distain for the electorate who voted in New Labour three times.

But Maajid pointed out that Blair won with a landslide victory and it was the will of the people for him to be Prime Minister - the exact same argument that Brexiteers are using against Remainers.

Speaking on his LBC show, Maajid said: "You voted Brexit, right? When Remainers complain about the result, you people say 'Don't hold distain for the will of the people'.

"But the will of the people who elected Tony Blair three times in a row in massive landsides - and you're calling the people thick?

"Yet you don't like it when you call Brexiteers thick?

"Isn't that a huge dose of hypocisy right there?"

Keith suggested that the people who voted in Blair didn't understand the issues, but Maajid countered: "That's what Remainers say about Brexiteers. We remainers say you didn't understand the issues and you say to us 'Don't patronise us, don't talk down to us'.

"And now you're doing the same looking down your nose at the people who voted for someone you didn't like.

"What you've just done, Keith, that's hypocrisy. You just insulted the British electorate."
