Jeremy Corbyn touched a deep, deep nerve today in Theresa May when he humorously exposed the Prime Minister’s lack of competence – and apparently confidence – in the Brexit negotiations by asking her whether she had asked Donald Trump to take over Britain’s part in the negotiations.
As Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson had suggested.
May’s face – and Johnson’s – painted an unmistakable picture of the tensions between the two and of how deeply Corbyn’s dig struck:
Johnson’s naughty-schoolboy embarrassment couldn’t hide the worry in his eyes as he sneaks a glance at his angry headmistress – but May’s stony expression and prolonged silence should be compulsory viewing for the underminers and #FBPE-cultists who try to make political capital out of nonsensical claims that Labour is not opposing the Tories on Brexit.
