Boris gives a speech reaching out to Remainers. How do some Remainers respond? With a torrent of personal abuse and conspiracy theories, refusing to engage with anything in the speech having already made up their minds beforehand, and calling him “mendacious” and “evil”, among other pleasantries:

He’s a shower of mendacious arguments and self-interest.

He’s often guilty of winging it but when it comes to ‘betrayal’ Boris Johnson’s credentials are impeccable.
Just ask all his wives, mistresses, bosses and party leaders.

No one laughing at any of #BorisJohnson’s crap jokes. People realising now there’s nothing remotely funny about this evil clown.

Is he drunk or are we drunk? #BorisJohnson

Ludicrous situation at @BorisJohnson speech today when the Foreign Sec called @Channel4News Europe Editor @mattfrei to ask a question only for the @Policy_Exchange to veto in favour of throw away question on giving up cake for lent. Just what are they scared of?

Boris had a point about some Remainers suffering from “Brexchosis”. Who are really the divisive ones?
