...and those cringe-mak­ing pom­posi­ties

Scottish Daily Mail - - The Brexmas Election -

To Michael Gove, Septem­ber 2019:

I say to the Chan­cel­lor of the Duchy, that when he turns up at our school as a par­ent, he’s a very well-be­haved fel­low. He wouldn’t dare be­have like that in front of [the school] and nei­ther would I. Don’t ges­tic­u­late, don’t rant, spare us the the­atrics, be­have your­self. Be a good boy young man – be a good boy.

Blam­ing his wife for an anti-Brexit sticker on his car, Jan­uary 2019:

I’m sure the hon­ourable gen­tle­man wouldn’t sug­gest for one mo­ment that a wife is some­how the prop­erty or chat­tel of her hus­band. She is en­ti­tled to her views, that sticker is not mine and that’s the end of it.

In­sult­ing Greg Hands, March 2019:

I don’t re­quire any help from the right hon­ourable gen­tle­man. I wouldn’t have the fog­gi­est idea where to start. He was once a whip, he wasn’t a very good whip. It’d be bet­ter if he kept quiet.

Ber­at­ing Es­ther McVey, March 2015:

I am re­minded of the feel­ing when one thinks the wash­ing ma­chine will stop – but it does not!

To two noisy MPs , June 2014:

Can I say to Mr Robert­son – you do have some­thing of a lion’s roar and it rather lets you down, be­cause I can hear very clearly it’s you. And as for you Mr Lu­cas, I’ve told you you need to go on some sort of ther­a­peu­tic train­ing course if you’re to at­tain the level of states­man­ship to which you as­pire.
