Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Instructive to hear "Sadge" (?sp.) squirming around when the ever-polite Mishal Husain reminded him of his condemnation, just a few short weeks ago, of the very idea of prorogation. Here's wot he said in the leadership campaign about it:
The chancellor, Sajid Javid, was also staunchly opposed to shutting down parliament during the Tory leadership campaign. “You don’t deliver on democracy by trashing democracy ... we are not selecting a dictator of our country,” he said. (Nice bit of Grauniad bad sentence construction there...)
A bit different this morning then, Sadge. Wriggle wriggle...
Government by trained liars now, it seems. It was also glaringly noticeable that he wouldn't answer questions about the sacking of his adviser, relationships in Cummings-dominated Number Ten or his row with Johnson. Well I for one think that he should have been answering those questions. Mind you, he would probably have lied had he done so...
