Just had a look on Wiki.

Estimated East German Berlin Wall death toll: 140.

Brexit death toll: 1. And the person responsible was one of the alleged liberators.

But, yes. Exactly the same.

Fucking idiot.

He has form on this. After facing ridicule for his anti-experts dribblings Brexit intellectual Michael Gove compared himself to Jewish scientists having their work suppressed in Nazi Germany.
Is this him trying to be provocateur du jour or is he really that thick?

Question only partly rhetorical...

Disturbingly far too many Brexshitters genuinely believe that as long as the UK is a member of the European Union, they will continue to be the most oppressed people on earth.
The right exists in a permanent state of victimhood.

Straight white men who think they're persecuted because the world is run for and by straight white men.

Over at the speccy the odious Douglas Murray has claimed that Gove was misinterpreted.

In the magazine cover piece this week I describe how institutions as well as individuals are having a hard time making it through this deranging age. Bishops call for restraint but then have outbursts of ungodly anger. MPs and peers talk about the need for civility and then are found jabbering like street-corner lunatics. But something that happened yesterday evening provides almost a case-study of the era.

There is no reason why most people should have heard of Peter Neumann. A minor left-wing pundit, he is currently a professor of ‘security studies’ at King’s College London. As it happens, King’s is fast-becoming a home for insignificant polemicists masquerading as academics. But perhaps that is a subject for another occasion. In any case, the reason why Neumann is of interest is because of something that happened at the German Embassy in London yesterday evening.

The occasion was a celebration of German Unity Day, and one of the speakers to address the gathering was Michael Gove. If there had been no recording of the event and someone had gone by the reaction of social media then they would have assumed that the minister had made a highly uncharacteristic, indeed monumentally crass political gaffe. But there was a recording:
Not surpisingly it turns out he's talking bollocks.
