When she sees our flag, she is “embarrassed” of it!  – Emily Thornberry is humiliated by a Tory minister over Brexit.

Attorney General Suella Braverman blasted Labour’s Emily Thornberry for being embarrassed of Britain’s flag and seeking to give over the nation to Brussels over Brexit.

When she sees our flag, she is “embarrassed” of it!  – Emily Thornberry is humiliated by a Tory minister over Brexit.

The two women fought during Ms Braverman’s briefing in the Commons. Ms Thornberry, Labour’s shadow attorney general, asked about legal advice offered to the government to conclude a battle with the EU over Northern Ireland.

Labour opposes protecting the UK’s integrity and has sided with Brussels bureaucrats amid rumours they’ll create a Rejoiner partnership with the Lib Dems.

Ms Braverman, a popular figure among Brexiteers who led the ERG, lashed out at her leftwing opponent, a Corbyn loyalist.

She noted that Ms Thornberry was terminated after a snarky tweet about a home with a Cross of George England flag and a white vehicle outside.

As a member of Corbyn’s front bench, she fought to block Britain from leaving the EU and eliminate Britain’s nuclear deterrent, which defends it from Russian invasion.

Suella Braverman: “I love the United Kingdom, [Thornberry] is embarrassed by our flag.”

Ms Braverman told Tory MPs: “There are big differences between [Thornberry] and myself. I am very disappointed at the line of attack.”

“I love the United Kingdom, [Thornberry] is embarrassed by our flag.”

“I am proud of the leadership the UK has demonstrated and [Thornberry] wants us to be run by Brussels and wants to scrap Trident.”

“My heroes are Churchill and Thatcher, hers are Lennin and Corbyn.”

Deputy Speaker Eleanor Laing intervened to stop Ms Thornberry from interrupting.

Ms Thornberry asked about unpublished legal advice, saying: “The Attourney General has said again today that there is a longstanding convention that prevents her from discussing either the fact or the content of her legal advice on the Northern Ireland Protocol which makes it all the more remarkable that on Wednesday 11 May that the Times and BBC not only disclosed the fact of her advice but also quoted from its contents.”

Labour’s Emily Thornberry “ashamed” of our flag

She questioned whether Ms Braverman authorised the disclosure.

Braverman stated: “I take the convention incredibly seriously as a running thread through the integrity and robustness with which law officers can provide advice.”

“I don’t comment on press speculation.”

“I would say this. The measures proposed there are to protect peace in Northern Ireland. They are proposed there to protect the Belfast Agreement and to protect our precious United Kingdom.”
