Jeremy Corbyn and Number Ten Downing Street.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: <<

Today was the first time I faced Boris Johnson in Parliament. He said he "struggled" to discover a question in what I'd said. In fact, I asked him 10 things and he failed to answer a single one:

1. Will he match Labour's commitment of £500 billion investment to rebalance this country through regional development banks and a National Transformation Fund?

2. Given he has appointed the first Home Secretary for a generation to support the death penalty, will he assure us that his Government has no plans to bring back capital punishment?

3. Before appointing the new Education Secretary was the Prime Minister given sight of the Huwaei leak investigation by the Cabinet Secretary?

4. He was in the Cabinet that accepted the Northern Ireland backstop and he voted for it in March. Could he set out what he finds so objectionable now and explain his flip-flopping?

5. There is something eerily familiar about a Prime Minister marching off to Europe with demands to scrap the backstop. How does he think he will succeed where his predecessor failed?

6. If the Prime Minister continues to pursue a reckless No Deal, does he accept that he would be directly flouting the expressed will of this Parliament?

7. Companies from Toyota to Asda have been clear about the dangers of No Deal. Is the Prime Minister still guided by his "F**k business" policy?

8. The office of Prime Minister requires integrity and honesty, so will he correct his claim that kipper exports from the Isle of Man to the UK are subject to EU regulations?

9. To tackle the climate emergency: will he ban fracking; back real British ingenuity like the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon; increase investment into carbon capture and storage; back our solar industry and onshore wind, so devastated in the last nine years; and set out a credible plan to reach net zero carbon emissions?

10. Will he ask the new Foreign Secretary to prioritise the release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe? And is he committed to working with European partners to restore the Iran nuclear deal and de-escalate tensions in the Gulf?

Direction of resistance / implied resistance: That was Corbyn, just now.

Removal of resistance: Obviously a gutless snake oil salesman like Boris will go all out to never answer those questions. Unification: And hopes to rely on a stupid and lazy public. Don't give Boris what he wants. Be intelligent and don't waste your life.
