Boris Johnson tells Jeremy Corbyn that he ‘finds it rich to hear about his sentimental attachment to the union’ as Corbyn has been an IRA supporter in preference to supporting the union for years.
Johnson’s jibe at Corbyn took place in a testy questions to the prime minister session in the house of commons today. Order papers were waved on the Tory back benchers whilst the opposition benches were festooned with angry MPs spitting blood at the government’s front bench from ‘sedentary positions.’
Speaker Bercow, who is working his notice so couldn’t give a flying f*ck, shouted ‘order’ as he took orders for lunch from disenfranchised MPs who recently lost the tory whip. (For the record, Hansard states that Bercow ordered a Quattro formaggio pizza from Deliveroo).
However, it did not go unnoticed to political observers that there was a certain irony in what PM Johnson had said. Twice sacked for lying (I just thought I’d remind everyone about that) Johnson’s new Brexit deal does more to damage the DUP than many years of IRA terrorist activity. Having blatantly lied to the unionist right wing DUP dinosaurs at their conference, reassuring them that he would NEVER treat Northern Ireland separately to the mainland, and that there would NEVER be a border down the Irish sea, his new deal does just that. A diagram of what Johnson has done would look like a giant turd coiling out of Johnson’s pimply arse and plopping down towards the top of Arlene Foster’s head.
“Oi tink Johnson’s doin’ a terrific job, to be sure, to be sure,” said spokesperson-for-the-IRA-an-racial-stereotype, Paddy O’Dottle, “De lads’ve all clubbed together and bought a ‘congratulations & thank you’ card to send to him. We’ve said there’ll be a crate of Guinness in the post for him if he gets his new bill into law.”
It is no secret that the Labour leader, Corbyn, has long supported the end of British rule in Ulster, and that he met the leaders of Sinn Fein and other republicans in the 1980s and 1990s when the Provisional IRA were still bombing and shooting people.
But the Labour leader supported many unpopular causes during this period, notably:
- Give America back to the Indians
- Give Israel back to the Palestinians
- Give Gaul back to the Romans
… and most controversial of all,
- Give the Garden of Eden back to the serpents.
