Brexiteer savaged for publicity stunt in his local Tesco

A Tory Leave MP was left looking like a bit of a lemon after carrying out an “analysis” of the fruit and vegetables in his local Tesco.
Daniel Kawczynski used the backdrop of a fruit and vegetable stand in a Tesco store in Shrewsbury to make his case that “massive tariffs imposed” by the EU meant that we’re “paying more” for our five a day.
A buoyant Kawczynski boldly claimed “no more after March 2019!” - but we suspect he will be feeling less chipper when he reads the savage responses he received from social media users.
One user keen to point out the MP’s inaccuracies was Jim Cornelius, a Remainer from Lewes in East Sussex. In his ten responses he pointed out most of the fruit and vegetables the MP was pictured with did not come from the European Union – but from countries where free trade deals are already in place.
It would mean prices would not drop if the UK left the European Union.
To make matters worse another user reported the MP to Tesco’s customer services for acting suspiciously in their store.
The MP has yet to respond to Cornelius’ tweets.
