Man who wrote book calling Brits ‘the worst idlers in the world’ couldn’t be bothered to phone Afghan government


Dominic Raab phone call

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab – a man who once wrote a book calling the British ‘lazy’ – simply couldn’t be arsed to make a call to help evacuate interpreters from Afghanistan.

In 2012 a group of Tory MPs wrote a book – ‘Britannia Unchained’ – in which they criticised the British public for being workshy and unproductive.

One of the authors was Dominic Raab, a man who can’t be bothered to carry out basic aspects of his job as Foreign Secretary, even when people’s lives are at risk.

“Well, this sort of proves my point, doesn’t it?” said Raab.

“I’m British and I was too lazy to make a phone call – something I could literally have done while lying in bed.

“I said that British people prefer a lie-in to hard work and I was right!

“The time difference in Afghanistan meant that I would have had to get up, like, hours earlier than usual to make an important phone call. So yes, I chose a lie-in instead. Who wouldn’t?

“If you need further evidence that the British like to avoid work, at the time of an international crisis the PM and I were literally on holiday! You can’t get more workshy than that!

“God, I love being right so much!

“Of course, this doesn’t change my opinion that we should all strive to be more like the hard-working Chinese.

“In fact, I think I’ll pop over to China to get some advice from their government on how we can be more productive.

“Wait, China is how far? Fuck that!”
