Boris Johnson tried to pull a stunt with his letter to the EU – 23 signature responses

On what the Trades Descriptions Act would probably object to being called Super Saturday, MPs attended an extraordinary weekend sitting of the House of Commons to debate and vote on the new Withdrawal Agreement. Unfortunately for Boris Johnson, his fellow Tory, Oliver Letwin, tabled an amendment designed to postpone approval of the Withdrawal Bill long enough to force Johnson to request an extension from the EU.

The Letwin Amendment passed, the government benches emptied faster than spaff up a wall, and the vote didn’t happen.

CORRECTION: The vote did happen, but “on the nod”.

In any event, the letter was sent – technically …

The internet was both unimpressed and on its best game when it came to taking the piss.

Some people re-imagined the letter.
