The heated exchange between Sir Chris Bryant and Rishi Sunak today led Bryant to get muddled with his facts in his attempt to condemn the PM.
Whilst bashing Rishi for failing to pay Parliament – and specifically the
Kangaroo Court Privileges Committee – sufficient respect, Bryant claimed that Wes Streeting had made the vote, even after attending the same charity event as Rishi that evening. Wes did not vote on the Privileges Committee’s report…
He gave Rishi a further telling off by claiming the report was only “about 3 pages long” – making the fairly significant oversight that the report is, in fact, fourteen pages long. Looks like Sir Chris Bryant should correct the record…
UPDATE: Chris Bryant tweets a clarification
The Report itself is 4 1/2 pages long. There is also a cover page; a copyright page; a contents page; an Annex to the Report (4 pages); minutes of the Committee (1 page) and a list of reports to the Committee (1 page). https://t.co/1JSQYPHmRE— Chris Bryant (@RhonddaBryant) July 4, 2023
