Damien Green savages Emily Thornberry for ‘finding it difficult’ to wave the St George’s flag


Damien Green hit out at Emily Thornberry over her past hatred for the St George’s flag.

Speaking at the House of Commons yesterday during Prime Ministers Questions, Ms Thornberry said: “Thank you very much Mr Speaker. Let me first join the Secretary of State in congratulating the RAF on its anniversary.

“And congratulating Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their engagement.

“That’s one anglo-American couple we on this side will be delighted to see holding hands.

“I’m sure that Prince Harry, the patron of rugby football league will be joining all of us in supporting the England team in the World Cup final on Saturday.

“And I for one, will be of course waving my St George’s flag.”

The Express reported that “Ms Thornberry resigned from the Labour shadow cabinet in 2014 after she posted a photo of a house with three St George’s flags hanging outside it. ”

Damien Green hit back at Mrs Thornberry: “She may find it difficult to wave her St George’s flag, but I will be doing so for the English rugby league team.”

“As a Welsh rugby fan, I may find it even more difficult than her,” he said. “But I will be doing so as well.”

Emily Thornberry humiliated by Question Time audience after she FAILS to answer this simple question

Labours Emily Thornberry appeared to struggle to answer a simple question asked by a Question Time audience member last night.

A member of the Newcastle audience said: “I’d like to hear an example of a country where Corbyn and McDonnell’s economic ideas have worked.”

We all know the answer to this, it’s zero.

Their policies do not work and are dangerous. However, this is what she had to say.

Mrs Thornberry said: “I would suggest that actually, the Labour party is a social democratic party, pretty much from the centre of Europe.”

Continuing to ramble before the host interrupted her she added: “And if you look at European economic policies throughout, which are successful policies, where they invest in their infrastructure, where they invest in safety nets…”

Is it really that difficult to name a single country?

Politicians these days love to ramble on but never really say anything with any substance.

This is a perfect example.

In the General Election earlier this year the socialist promised a hike on income tax.
