Never one to knowingly let an opportunity for a rant to pass him by, foreign secretary Boris Johnson has reacted angrily after Tony Blair called for Britons to "rise up" against Brexit.
In an interview with Sky News, Boris – whose ministrations have, admittedly, become increasingly measured since he was appointed to his role after the EU referendum – accused Blair of "insulting the intelligence of the electorate".
"We heard all the arguments [against Brexit] last year. Not a thing has changed," he said.
In typical style, he added:
I respectfully say to Tony Blair, those who call the British people to rise up against Brexit, I urge the British people to rise up and turn off the TV the next time Blair comes on with his condescending campaign.
