This Welsh MP’s point-by-point takedown of Boris Johnson’s ‘big calls’ was magnificently done
The government predictably won a vote of confidence in the Commons, meaning Boris Johnson will be in Downing Street until the Tory party finally elects a new leader, some time in September.
But Monday’s debate wasn’t entirely wasted – far from it – because it featured this contribution from Geraint Davies, the Labour MP for Swansea West, taking down each of the ‘big calls’ Johnson has apparently got right.
And it’s a magnificent watch.
Watch this 👇 Labour MP for Swansea West Geraint Davies has just eviscerated Boris Johnson and laid waste to every single claim he’s made where he’s insisted he got the big calls right… absolutely ruthless and every word speaking truth to power… #NoConfidenceVote pic.twitter.com/0s1jz5hYvO

Blistering stuff, and for once we’re not talking about the heat.
When the Welsh turn, they do it proper like!

Superb. Towards the end you can hear the geiger counter as he goes nuclear.

And this, from fellow Labour MP Kevin Brennan, was pretty fabulous too.
I just put it to Prime Minister that it’s highly unconventional for him to put down a confidence motion in his own Government – “he’s an unconventional person, since only an unconventional man would want the opportunity to speak at his own funeral” #BorisJohnson #NoConfidenceVote pic.twitter.com/iSIvYGqKVZ
