Leader of the House of Commons Penny Mordaunt compared Sir Keir Starmer to a Decorator Crab. Penny Mordaunt compared Sir Keir Starmer to a crab and accused him of running “Operation Radish” in a bid to convince voters that Labour looks “red on the outside”. Ms Mordaunt said of the recent defections from the Tories to Labour: “What it has exposed is a pattern of behaviour from the leader of the Opposition. It is a shame we are not due an update to Peter Brookes’ Nature Notes, for the decorator crab is a species which covers its surface area with materials to disguise its true form, usually selecting sedentary creatures and seaweed. “The leader of the Opposition is the decorator crab of these benches, desperate to show that he’s not really leading the Labour Party at all. He’s channelled Margaret Thatcher, his deputy has praised Boris (Johnson), he’s expelled the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) with great fanfare – a man he was campaigning to be prime minister only moments before. “His exterior shell is stuck over with St George’s flags, his Gunners season ticket and several programmes from the Last Night of the Proms. What next: a photo op with a bulldog? A lecture on how misunderstood Enoch Powell was? Should I ask the whip on duty on the front bench if he has checked in recently with the honourable member for Rayleigh and Wickford (Mark Francois)? “This is Operation Radish: the concerted effort to convince the British public that while the Labour Party might look red on the outside, at its heart it isn’t really at all. However, even the defection from our benches of one Labour’s most sternest critics cannot disguise the fact that Operation Radish is not going well.” MORE POLITICS: https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/politics/ Become a Scottish Sun Subscriber and hit the bell to be the first to know http://www.theScottishsun.co.uk https://www.facebook.com/thescottishsun/ https://twitter.com/ScottishSun #pennyMordaunt #snp #politics #labour #westminster #decoratorcrab #keirStarmer #radish
