What’s Her Point?

Louise Mensch cannot bear being out of the limelight – I suspect that, without the oxygen of regular media appearances, she may be on the verge of losing her mental stability. Since she resigned her seat as an MP (a seat she looked certain to lose in 2015) and moved to the US she has taken every opportunity to crowbar herself on to British TV to spout off on any subject that she has heard about on Fox News.  After you have watched the clip of her espousing doctrinal nonsense about the Occupy London protestors you may find yourself asking, as this observer does,….
