British politicians and their artful put-downs

A few great choice insults from the British political class for your amusement…

“A C3PO made of ham.”

– Columnist Caitlin Moran, describing prime minister David Cameron

 “She talks about strong and stable leadership, but at the first sign of difficulty in her talks with Brussels, she is wobbling and lashing out like some hybrid of Richard Nixon and Cersei Lannister.”*

– UK shadow education secretary Emily Thornberry, describing prime minister Theresa May

(*This one is funnier if  you're familiar with Game of Thrones)

“A mixture of Harry Houdini and a greased piglet. He is barely human in his elusiveness. Nailing Blair is like trying to pin jelly to a wall.”

– Then London mayor Boris Johnson describing prime minister Tony Blair

“The right honorable and learned gentleman has twice crossed the floor of the house, each time leaving behind a trail of slime.”

– British prime minister Lloyd George (1863-1945), referring to rival politician Sir John Simon
