WESTMINSTER — Theresa May has criticised Boris Johnson’s decision to make David Frost his Brexit envoy.
Michael Gove spoke out in support of the PM, though saying Frost will ‘blow those EU bastards away with probing questions like “Who lives in a house like this?”‘
Mrs May went on to say that employing a man who is ‘not only quite clearly devoid of life but also has no concept of what Brexit even means is nonsensical’ but was told by speaker Lyndsey Hoyle that ‘that particular description is true of most of the cabinet.’
Sir Keir Starmer described Frost’s appointment as ‘preposterous’ and demanded to know what Dominic Cummings’ thinks he’s playing at.’
He said despite the Nixon interviews, Mr Frost has spent no time in day to day politics and will find that ‘the rigours of the job far outweigh those of television work’ adding ‘and he’s a little bit dead’ which will make it ‘very difficult for him to attend Zoom meetings owing to an inability to use a mouse.’
But Boris Johnson said the Labour leader was being ‘defeatist’ and suggested that ‘a bit of good old British bullishness will inject life into even the most dead of dead men.’
Asked whether there was any chance of injecting some of that bullishness into the 44,000 Brits who have died of Covid -19, Mr Johnson responded by ruffling his hair and stuttering before eventually shouting that he’s not Jeremy Corbyn to get the press back onside.
