Exactly that - to put BoJo on the defensive and simultaneously humiliate him. I’m really having a go on Twitter this morning, for example:
quote Bloody HELL prime minister, you were on fire! Even TBM was never better at the DB. You were knocking the self-serving, agenda-driven, opportunistic traitors (and they are!!) down like so many ninepins. Respect, Sir. And I agree - the judgement WAS wrong.
BTW, the Remainers, especially the female ones, are really touchy about the term Surrender Act though - I WONDER why? lol unquote
'The Prime Minister keeps referring to the “surrender act,” much to the anger of the opposition benches who are interrupting him by shouting “disgusting!” whenever he uses the term.
