The Brexit Secretary voted against the motion he’d just promoted – 9 naysayers

Even in all the political pandemonium, it’s hard to work out why anyone would make a passionate speech in favour of something, only to vote against it ten minutes later, which is what the Secretary of State for Exiting the EU, Stephen Barclay, did last night.

Here’s his – reasonably convincing – performance.

The Government is currently obsessed with listing options, so let’s do it their way.

He didn’t mean a word of that speech and can’t be trusted.
He changed his mind in the ten minutes it took him to get to the lobby and can’t be trusted.
He couldn’t find his way to the right lobby with both hands and a flashlight – and can’t be trusted.

People were both baffled – and strangely unsurprised at this latest turn of events.
