‘Sit down you disloyal twerp!’ Brigden’s question to PM shot down by Tories
- Credit: Archant
Outspoken Brexiteer and Tory MP Andrew Bridgen continues to embarrass himself on the topic of Brexit.
This time he has made an error of judgement in the House of Commons.
The European Research Group member was jeered by his own party as he made a jibed reference to Theresa May's dancing.
He said: 'The prime minister is well known for her dancing, but sadly having seen the withdrawal agreement it now clear the tune she has been dancing to.
'My right honourable friend campaigned for Remain, she voted Remain, now surely it's in the national interest for her to leave, perhaps following a short transition period.'
