Last Sunday I watched the Andrew Marr Show and during the papers review, the subject of a basic income was touched on. The Ukip MP Douglas Carswell basically poured scorn on the idea, secure in the knowledge that it "wouldn't work" because the Romans (known for their software, AI and machine automation) had tried it and it didn't work then either!

Marr didn't challenge him on this, nor either of the other guests, but if the basic logic skills of MPs is this bad, it's going to take a long time.
