Jubilant PM Welcomes His 'Blue Army' of MPs And Taunts Labour
BORIS Johnson is cheered into Commons chamber – next to a grim-faced Corbyn.
Johnson and Corbyn came face-to-face today for the first time since the landslide Tory Triumph.
The two leaders were seen to endured an awkward walk side-by-side through the Central Lobby to the Lords, where the Queen’s instruction for Parliament to start sitting was read out.
Neither party leaders seemed to make any attempt to break the awkwardness and strike up conversation, their contempt for one another was made clear during the brutal election campaign and neither were backing down.
Mr Johnson was received with loud cheered by his “Blue Army” whilst Mr Corbyn was jeered as he entered – having been humiliated by voters last Thursday
Mr Johnson went on to state that ‘democracy’ had taken charge and the House could finally ‘get Brexit done’ That his Parliament is not going to waste the time of the nation in deadlock and delay.’
Whilst Johnson repeated the motto of ‘get Brexit done’ Tory MPs chanted along with him.
Mr Corbyn could only offer a gloomy speech in comparison saying that his job was still to hold the government to ‘account’.
‘The PM made many many promises and he must take responsibility to live up to them,’ he added.
Boris confidently assured that the voters had changed the government and his party for the better, and that it was his duty to repay the trust of the voters and “change our country for the better,’
He added: ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet.’
