As the SKWAWKBOX showed earlier, a beetroot-faced – or possibly gammon-faced – Boris Johnson was on the receiving end of a death-stare from Theresa May as a rampant Jeremy Corbyn took . the Tories apart during today’s PMQs (Prime Minister’s Questions) over their Brexit incompetence.
But that wasn’t the end of the Foreign Secretary’s discomfiture.
Corbyn ‘punked’ Theresa May by warning the Commons that the government’s feeble Brexit efforts were about to become a ‘melt-down’, drawing May into wagging a finger at him – before revealing that the words were not his – but Johnson’s:
Johnson again looked transfixed, before making a few flustered-looking gestures. But he’s hoisted by his own words, that the government is in melt-down and that the Treasury is letting down the side by not wanting the country and the economy to be damaged.
The Tories are in absolute chaos over Brexit – and the May/Johnson split is looking ever more likely to be the hole below the waterline of their foundering ship.
Corbyn, meanwhile, looks ever more the Prime Minister in waiting.
