Beth Rigby reported the PM having a public meltdown in the voting lobby, quite the scoop:
MP tells me that Johnson had an
‘angry meltdown’ in voting lobbies. Am told that @jessphillips personally challenged him as did others . MP tells me PM saw a group watching through the doors & then started jabbing his finger towards us all

Brexiteer MP Marcus Fysh say it is untrue
Not true Beth. I witnessed the discussion Jess was animated/agitated, Boris was conciliatory and calm.

Nadine Dorries, a Boris loyalist, says she was there, “The only finger jabbing and raised voice came from Jess as her friends photographed and filmed it. The PM could barely get a word in and was embarrassed and bemused as Jess shouted.”
These are all of course Boris loyalists, so they might be discounted, except Jess Phillips herself also denies it is true
I’ve read a few wild accounts of Boris Johnson and I in the lobby, can I just say I don’t recall any shouting or aggression I asked him some questions, he failed to answer any of them properly, he went to vote the end.

Yet Beth has left her tweet up for her 141,000 followers to see with thousand of retweets garnered. Completely rejected as fake news by named witnesses and those involved.
