Emily Maitlis has had enough of political BS – 9 perfect reactions

Yesterday was a momentous day in politics, as Theresa May’s EU Withdrawal Agreement was rejected for the second time in the House of Commons, by a resounding 149 votes. Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis had the task of trying to pick the bones out of what’s going on, but as no politician is prepared to answer a straight question with a straight answer, she had her work cut out. When Labour’s Barry Gardiner refused to be pinned down on a manifesto outline, Emily had clearly had enough.

Now, that’s a mood! A lot of people were here for it, as her side-eye was the most authentic voice of the people at this trying time.

Her reaction was very much reminiscent of the wonderful Simon McCoy reporting some Royal baby news.
