Jess Phillips has given us a taste of how she would treat Boris Johnson, if she is elected as Labour Party leader.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Phillips – who is standing to be Labour leader – made a jibe about the Prime Minister’s unwillingness to discuss how many children he has.
“I don’t think he is a very moral man,” Phillips told the Standard.
“It speaks to his character. I mean, just not being able to say how many children you have. As a woman, I really remember those kids being born – it hurt!”
Johnson has repeatedly avoided questions about the number of children he has, following speculation about his highly-publicised affairs.
Asked about this subject during the general election campaign, the PM said: “I love my children very much, but they are not standing at this election, and I am not therefore going to comment.”
This is despite the fact that Johnson has commented very publicly in the past about the morality of having children out of wedlock. Writing in 1995 for the Spectator, Johnson described the children of single mothers as “ill-raised, ignorant, aggressive and illegitimate”.
Ironically, pretty much all qualities that are displayed by the PM himself.
