Barely a week after Brexity columnist and humble-bragger about holidays, Quentin Letts, tweeted something incredibly stupid about the Swiss border, Brexity columnist and humble-bragger about holidays, Julia Hartley-Brewer has tweeted something incredibly stupid about the Swiss border.
This is what Quentin Letts said.
Just skied from the EU into independent Switzerland. Quite disgracefully, there was no hard border. Not even a line in the snow.

This – having clearly not done the required reading – is what Julia Hartley-Brewer tweeted.
She posted an addendum, presumably expecting it to save her from Mr Letts’ fate.
And, yes, I know Switzerland is in Schengen. But we aren’t now, and we won’t be after Brexit, so why does anything have to change if the British and EU leaders are sensible and agree that it doesn’t need to?

Every media person who thinks they’ve solved Brexit on their skiing holiday should be made to transport a lorry full of insulin back the other way and livetweet the process https://t.co/04CKuZrCtu

33 days till brexit and these bellends still think they’ve solved Brexit by going on a skiing holiday to a Schengen country (without a massive lorry load of goods) whilst we’re still in the fucking EU pic.twitter.com/I0QuoZNoYs

Can someone explain how Remainers are the liberal elite when every other Leave commentator seems to have spent the winter skiing on the sodding Swiss border? https://t.co/1iCR1r7xcH

Were you in a lorry? No? Then that’s totally irrelevant. Either you know that, and you’re deliberately trying to mislead, or you don’t and you’re an idiot. https://t.co/mVQiXd50Mi
