Uh oh! GMB union chief and leading Remainer Tim Roache tells his annual conference:
“Priti Patel, surely a contradiction in her name”
Think Tim should have gone to Specsavers…
BSE’s Will Straw said Tim Roache “speaks for over 600,000 working people” when he endorsed Remain back in February. Now Straw is silent. Meanwhile Harriet Harman is the big gun wheeled out for the Remain campaign today. She would be touring the studios if a Leaver had said this...
UPDATE II: Roache doubles down:
UPDATE III: BSE statement on the man they described as “fantastic” three months ago:
“Comments like this have no place in this debate.”
UPDATE IV: Tory MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan: “This abuse is a new low for the remain campaign.”
