BORIS Johnson openly laughed in the Commons yesterday when Jeremy Corbyn attempted to mock him over his rift with Philip Hammond. The Foreign Secretary was sitting next to the Chancellor during Prime Minister’s Questions when the Labour leader launched a furious tirade about Cabinet splits over Brexit.
Mr Corbyn seized on leaked remarks when Mr Johnson described the Treasury as “the heart of Remain”.
The Labour leader quoted Mr Johnson’s warning that “there may now be a meltdown” in the Brexit negotiations.
He said: “Last week, he also took aim at the Treasury... calling them ‘the heart of Remain’.
“How much more damage is the Prime Minister going to do to this country before she realises that the important thing is to get a deal for the people, not one to appease the clashing giant egos of her Cabinet?”
