Does anyone know the names of the two MP’s that Johnson accused of lying today? I know the first was Labour: not sure about the second. I’d like to contact them.

I might be able to rewind, male or female?

If you have BBC IPlayer you could watch it again

I'd try and find it for you but I can't bear having to watch or listen to Johnson. I just about manage watching PMQs when it's the LOTO...

It’s painful isn’t it. He managed to slip in a couple of soundbites that he’d been thinking up all night. It’s worth rewatching anyway cause Keir was very good (imo). I’ll make myself a strong cup of coffee and rewatch it….

I didn't notice any new soundbites, unless you mean the one about lawyers approaching things from all angles.

Really, you just need a recording of him there because he says the same thing every week "Waffle, waffle, vaccines", "Waffle, waffle Vaccines" etc. Time he got a new soundbite writer...

Speaker had to tell him twice that he was supposed to be taking questions, not Starmer.

Bless you, JaneJudge for sitting through it again grin

On GMB this morning there was an interview with a layer, Peter Stefanovic on the subject of Johnson's lies. There is a video on his twitter account which has had 25 million views. I haven't been able to find it (I don't have a twitter account) but his interview with GMB is on You tube.

It makes my blood pressure go through the roof grin

I hate he forget's they are talking about REAL people and REAL people's problems. Or maybe he just doesn't care.

Mathew is my MP I wrote to him about the unfairness that Prince Charles and Duchy doesn't abide by new leaseholder laws when other landlords do Mr Pennycook wrote me an excellent letter saying it's very unfair to the tennents on Duchy land and would write to the housing minister about this.

I have not see him on PMQs will have a look for him. Thank you.

I’ve emailed Bell about the accusation and also thanked her for raising the issue. I’ll check out Mathews question. Thanks everyone.

Your link led me to the interview on GMB but I still have found Stevanovic's video. But thank you.

I’ve just been watching Johnson in front of the select committee. Even his own MP’s are exasperated at his inability to answer questions.

NotSpaghetti Wed 07-Jul-21 20:44:39

I write to my MP and get blah blah blah back.
Glad you got a reply from Pennycook.

I think this is the film Peter Stefanovic made. Apologies if not!

Welshwife Thank you.

I've just come across this clip of Chris Bryant asking a question at the liaison committee. On Bryant remarking that Johnson rarely 'corrects the record' (i.e. corrects his parliamentary lies) Johnson went off on a waffle about that notorious £350,000 lie on the side of the bus and was still lying about it! Pressed on 'Did he sack Hancock?' he prevaricated until timed out by the committee chair. Does he EVER tell the truth?

Here's the clip

Something just occurred to me. If the leader of the opposition can’t say that Johnson is lying about something why was Johnson allowed to say that Bell’s question was a lie ( or whatever term he used to imply that what she’d said was untrue).
