Jeremy Corbyn has turned into a remainer, says Boris Johnson during Commons clash


The country is deeply worried
that the new prime minister overestimates himself. I am deeply alarmed
to see no plan for Brexit. He was in the cabinet
that accepted the backstop and, of course, voted for it
on 30 March this year. It would be welcome if he could
set out what he finds so objectionable, having voted for it
less than four months ago. Can he explain this flip-flopping? The right honourable gentleman
has been captured. He has been jugulated,
he has been reprogrammed by his honourable friends. He has been turned now
into a remainer! [Cheering] He wants …
He has turned Labour into the party … Of all the flip-flops he has performed
in his tergiversating career, that is the one for which I think
he will pay the highest price. People fear that, far from wanting
to “take back control”, the new prime minister
would effectively make us a vassal state
of Trump’s America. [Background – Jeers/Noise.
Yes, you’re selling us to the US.] Will he ask the new foreign secretary
to prioritise the release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe? And is he working with European partners
to restore the Iran nuclear deal and de-escalate tensions in the Gulf? The right honourable gentleman
asks about trust and “Who can you trust
to run the Government?” How on earth? He asks about Iran, Mr Speaker. A right honourable gentleman
who has been paid by Press TV of Iran, who repeatedly sides with the mullahs
of Tehran rather than our friends in the United States over what
is happening in the Persian gulf.
