After the government’s Brexit Bill passed through the Commons unamended, whips, government ministers and Brexiteers were in the mood to celebrate.
Alas, not everyone was on the same page. Although Diane Abbott was well enough to vote for Article 50 today, the shadow home secretary is far from happy about the government’s plans for a ‘Tory Brexit’. So, it was unfortunate timing that she ran into an elated David Davis in Strangers’ bar this evening. Riding high on the day’s events, the Brexit secretary approached Abbott and proceeded to try and plant a celebratory kiss on her. Her response? Abbott proceeded to tell him to ‘f— off’.
Mr S suspects Davis ought to buy Abbott a ‘never kiss a Brexiteer’ t-shirt by way of apology.
