This forensic 9-point takedown of that Tory ‘second most powerful country in the world’ ad is simply perfect

You’ll no doubt have seen by now that butt-clenchingly awful Conservative Party ad declaring Britain the ‘second most powerful country in the world’ because, look.

There was no end of fabulous responses (and we’ve rounded up 27 of our favourite responses here).

But perhaps the most incisive and revealing response went to Nick Murphy, maker of TV dramas including A Spy Among Friends, A Christmas Carol and Save Me.

Because this is what he had to say about it.

And it didn’t end there.

And also.

We think that’s nine points. It could be 10, though. Or eight.

Last word to @nickmurftweets.
