"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

Cabinet Ministers can be pretty stupid.  The Independent reports:
Calls by a Cabinet minister for broadcasters to be "patriotic" over Brexit have been branded "sinister" by Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron.
Leader of the Commons Andrea Leadsom drew fire after making the remarks in a heated TV clash.
"It would be helpful if broadcasters were willing to be a bit patriotic," she told BBC Newsnight. "The country took a decision, this Government is determined to deliver on that decision."
