first_imgWhatsApp SharePrint REUTERS/Toby Melville/File PhotoREUTERS/Toby Melville/File Photo The Opposition and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has questioned the competence of the new Prime Minister and Conservative leader Boris Johson, warning that, ‘No-one underestimates this country but the country is deeply worried that the prime minister overestimates himself.’Corbyn made the comments during his address at Johnson’s first Prime Minister’s speech and questions in the House of Commons in London. During his address, he outlined serious concerns over Johnson’s  ability to address key issues affecting the UK, most notable of these being Brexit.Johnson delivers turbocharged maiden speech as PM in CommonsIn his speech to the House of Commons, the Labour leader warned that despite Mr Johnson having many problems to fix for the good of the country, the new leader has formed a ‘hard right cabinet staking everything on tax cuts for the few and a reckless race to the bottom Brexit.’Corbyn also raises concerns that the UK would become a satellite of the US. Quoting the US president Donald Trump’s nicknaming of Johnson as ‘Britain Trump,’ he asks if the new leader would ensure that key linchpins of the UK which include the National Health Service will be protected from trade deals done with the USA.He cites fears within the British public that the UK would become a, ‘vassal state to Trump’s America.’”I’m deeply alarmed to see no plan for #Brexit.”@jeremycorbyn asks why @BorisJohnson is now opposed to the backstop after voting for it in March.Follow live here: https://t.co/vgSaDcyy23 pic.twitter.com/Rf8ui2HEZm— Sky News (@SkyNews) July 25, 2019Concerns for the British peopleFollowing Corbyn’s long-held position on the impact of Brexit on the British people, he warns that the backers of Johnson’s leadership will not be affected by Brexit and urged that the next plan for the UK’s departure from the EU should be brought to the British people.Otherwise, Corbyn stresses that, ‘Labour will oppose any deal that fails to protect jobs, workers’ rights or environmental protections, and if he has the confidence to put that decision back to the people, we would in those circumstances, campaign to Remain.’The House of Commons jeered in response to the statement resulting in the Speaker of the House having to intervene to quieten the ruckus.”Our country does not need arm-waving bluster.”@Jeremycorbyn accuses @BorisJohnson of focusing on the interests “of the few, not the many”.Follow live updates here: https://t.co/vgSaDcyy23 pic.twitter.com/FNGyQ7sUP0— Sky News (@SkyNews) July 25, 201910 unanswered questionsThe Labour leader also outlined that the new Prime Minister has failed to answer 10 key questions ranging from resolving Brexit to policies on the death penalty and climate change.These are listed here:Will he match Labour’s commitment of a £500 billion investment to rebalance this country through regional development banks and a National Transformation Fund?Given his appointment is the first Home Secretary for a generation to support the death penalty, can the Prime Minister assure the House that his Government has no plans to bring back capital punishment?Before appointing the new Education Secretary was the Prime Minister given sight of the Huwaei leak investigation by the Cabinet secretary?He was in the Cabinet that accepted the backstop and of course voted for it on 30 March this year. It would be welcome if he could set out what he finds so objectionable, having voted for it less than four months ago. Could he explain this flip-flopping?There is also something eerily familiar about a Prime Minister marching off to Europe with demands to scrap the backstop. So how does the Prime Minister think he will succeed where his predecessor failed?If the Prime Minister continues to pursue a reckless No Deal, does he accept that he would be directly flouting the expressed will of this Parliament?Companies from Toyota to Asda have been clear about the dangers of No Deal. Is the Prime Minister still guided by his “F**k Business” policy?The office of Prime Minister requires integrity and honesty, so will he correct his claim that kipper exports from the Isle of Man to the UK are subject to EU regulations?To tackle the climate emergency: Will he ban fracking? Will he back real British ingenuity like the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon? Will he increase investment into carbon capture and storage? Will he back our solar industry and onshore wind, so devastated in the last nine years? Will he set out a credible plan to reach net zero?Will he ask the new Foreign Secretary to prioritise the release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe? And is he committed to working with European partners to restore the Iran nuclear deal and de-escalate tensions in the Gulf?center_img <a href=’https://sp2.img.hsyaolu.com.cn/wp-shlf1314/2023/IMG17465.jpg” alt=”last_img” /> read more
