Thornberry’s Unhelpful PMQs Defence

Despite being handed a major demotion in Starmer’s last shadow cabinet reshuffle, Emily Thornberry hasn’t stopped rushing to the aid of her boss after a PMQs pasting by Boris. After the PM tried out his new line on Starmer – that “he’s a lawyer, not a leader” – Thornberry came up with a list of other famous lawyers-turned-politicians. She describes them as “many great people”:
