Theresa May mocked Jeremy Corbyn today during Prime Minister’s questions over his past comments that he would be Prime Minister by Christmas.
Mrs May said to the house: “The right honourable gentlemen is wrong because NHS funding has gone up, he’s wrong because social care funding has gone up.”
“You know, not that long ago the right honourable gentlemen was saying he would be prime minister by christmas, well, he was wrong. I am and the Conservatives are in government.”
“Not that long ago he said we wouldn’t deliver on phase 1 of the Brexit negotiations, well he was wrong, we’ve made sufficient progress and we’re moving onto phase 2 of the Brexit negoatations.
Well said Mrs May!
It’s always great to see Mr Corbyn proved wrong.
Maybe he was referring to Christmas 2018…who knows!
Theresa May DEMANDS SNP chief to ‘Google it’ during fiery Brexit exchange
Theresa May hit back at Scottish National Party’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford telling him to ‘google it’.
Discussing this in the Commons, Mr Blackford said: “For the absence of any doubt can the Prime Minister tell the House today that in no circumstance will we be returning to a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.
“Let’s make that commitment tin this House today.”
The Prime Minister hit back, Mrs May blast: “He asked me to confirm in this house that there will be no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.
“I have to say to him this is not the first time I have made this statement in this House. He can Google it and find from Hansard how many times I have said it.
“Indeed, if he listened to my statement and looked at my statement I said the joint report reaffirms our guarantee that there will be no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.”
“Northern Ireland is in a different position from Scotland. It is the only part of the United Kingdom which has a land border with a country that will remain in the European Union.
“And it is in fact already the case that there are a number of unique, specific solutions that pertain to the island of Ireland – the common electricity market, for example.”
