Sky’s Beth Rigby quoting Boris Johnson’s words back to him is quite the watch
After Boris Johnson and Priti Patel were branded ‘total hypocrites’ over their condemnation of racist abuse, Sky News’s Beth Rigby had a question for the prime minister during a visit to Coventry today.
Sky’s political editor quoted some of Johnson’s words and actions back to him and asked if they undermined his image as a ‘unifying prime minister’.
Sky’s @BethRigby asks Boris Johnson if he and his ministers have ‘stoked division’ and questions if his ‘own record undermines his image as a unifier’.

Here’s another memorable Rigby-Johnson moment.
A year ago you said there'd be a border him the Irish Sea – and I quote you "over my dead body" – and here we both are, there is a border in the Irish Sea. Were you lying when you said no border or did you not understand the treaty you signed over Brexit? https://t.co/5W1KjDIVWy

And if you want to know what exactly Johnson has said about the booing of England players taking the knee, Full Fact have done this.
