Sir Keir’s Fake Withdrawal Agreement Ignorance
Sir Keir led his PMQs questioning this morning with a startling accusation that the Prime Minister lied about having a Brexit deal, using the tired Labour line that “the Prime Minister told us we had an oven ready deal” – then going further by saying “the Prime Minister said he had a deal.
