I suppose it is just about possible - unlikely but possible - that one or two intelligent persons slip through the net here and there. But when you have been asked to give expert advice to a council committee on a specific subject, only to hear mindless babble about nothing from people who are obviously innumerate and economically and technically completely illiterate, one is forced to come to one obvious conclusion.
Whoever first posed the question "Do many people who don't know what they are talking about know more or less than one person who doesn't know what they are talking about?" must have been attending a council committee meeting.

That is a classic case of a false syllogism!
Many MPs are clever, but not all - in fact, as the latest machinations in Westminster have shown us, most of those occupying the front benches of the two main parties are in fact every bit as grossly hebetudinous as Comrade Abbot.
Cue Andrew Neil - "In the studio tonight we have the Ghost of Mahatma Gandhi, a man with two heads, a nine-foot nun - AND DIANNE ABBOT!!!
