Boris Johnson faces fresh accusations of putting his personal gain ahead of the good of the country as opposition MPs begin to dissect his Withdrawal Agreement Bill.
A copy of the draft legislation seen by The Post Truth Post contains clauses that, once passed into law, would see Johnson “anointed as King of the World”.
The prime minister had hoped to expedite the bill’s passage through parliament in just three days but was blocked by opposition MPs who claimed they would need longer to scrutinise the legislation.
As MPs settled down with a highlighter pen and a cup of coffee to pour over the details of the bill, one clause has sparked outrage in Westminster.
Clause 5b of Article 8 states -- "Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson will be anointed King of the World and all will bow before his gracious golden hair and never again mention Brexit, ditches, or that American bird who gave him instruction on how to insert his dongle."
Lib Dem MP Marcus Toepath says, “the specifics of this Brexit deal are typical of a prime minister who has repeatedly put himself ahead of his country.
“We expected him to try and roll back workers rights and put a border in the Irish Sea, so that a few fund managers can travel to the Cayman Islands on a blue passport, but this is beyond the pale.”
In addition to fulfilling the prime minister’s childhood ambition, the UK’s future relationship with the EU could see all business meetings conducted in Latin and the playing fields of Eton protected as an area of exceptional natural beauty.
