A 'big girl's blouse' - UK PM Johnson taunts Corbyn on election

At Prime Minister's Questions, a parliamentary session when lawmakers get to quiz the British leader every Wednesday, Johnson used some choice language to attack Labour and try to rally his Conservatives after a bruising night on Tuesday.

After losing a vote on his Brexit plans late on Tuesday, Johnson was keen to get on the front foot by accusing Corbyn of supporting a policy of "dither and delay" over Brexit but also of running scared of his call for an early election on Oct.

15.

He appeared to shout at Corbyn that he was a "great big girl's blouse" -- a coward -- over his decision to back an election only when a no-deal Brexit was off the agenda.

He also answered a question from Liberal Democrats leader Jo Swinson by referring to "his" constituent, correcting himself to say "her".
