Following his controversial assertion that London hospitals are like ‘war zones’ as a result of people ‘stabbing, stabbing, stabbing’ each other, US President, Donald Trump, has now made the claim that British politicians often conclude debates by attacking one another with knives.
Speaking to members of the NRA in Maine, Trump told supporters: “The Brits criticise the 2nd Amendment and question our right to carry arms, but they need to put their own house in order first.
“I have it on good authority that their parliament is a really terrible place for knife fights.
“When they can’t get their own way they just stab each other until the cops arrive to break it up. Sad.
“When I met Theresa May the last time, she had quite a few knife scars on her face where that Corbyn guy had pulled a shank on her during a debate.
“Maybe if these guys were allowed to carry firearms things would be a little different over there. A Labour Party guy with a knife is no match for a Conservative with an AK47, my friends”
Trump’s comments have been met with outrage and derision in this country, with one MP threatening to “carve him up” when the president visits Britain in July, while the Speaker of The House of Commons, John Bercow, told reporters that if Trump sets foot in the debating chamber he would order members to pull his trousers down, bend him over the division bench and “stripe his arris” with an open razor.
