John Redwood mocked for telling people to buy non-existent British cars

MP’s tweet suggests many models are available, but UK-owned and manufactured cars are all in the luxury market

The Conservative MP John Redwood has provoked derision on social media with a call to buy cars manufactured in Britain. He tweeted:
