Corbyn’s powerful response to Johnson’s statement to MPs shows no mercy after Tory MP ‘crosses floor’ to LibDems
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn showed no mercy to Boris Johnson after Johnson’s majority was destroyed by the defection of Philip Lee to the LibDems – as Johnson was delivering a statement to the House of Commons.
“No mandate, no morals and as of today, no majority”
Corbyn’s powerful response laid bare the nonsense of Johnson’s claims of progress in EU discussions – and the Tory leader’s weakness both in character and in Parliament:
Boris Johnson has been built up by the Establishment media as some kind of clever or at least competent politician, in spite of his terrible track record and even though his advisers had to try to hide him during the Tory leadership contest.
In reality, he is even weaker and more chaotic than his woeful predecessor – and his term in office looks increasingly like it could be even more short-lived.
