This former Commons speaker can still put a prime minister firmly in his place

This clip speaks for itself.

Former Commons Speaker Lady (Betty Boothroyd), speaking in today’s (October 19) Lords debate on how badly Boris Johnson has cocked up the UK’s departure from the European Union, said the following:

“Never in my Parliamentary experience have I witnessed such a collapse in the people’s trust.”

That is a warning.

Johnson will be too stupid – or too selfish – to take it.

    Lamentably off-topic comment, I’m afraid – but I can’t help hoping that I’m half as lucid, fit, and generally ‘all there’ as Betty Boothroyd when/if I reach 91!!!
