The Guardian reports:
Boris Johnson’s first Prime Minister’s Questions was immediately embroiled in controversy after footage appeared to show him gesticulating towards Jeremy Corbyn, saying: “Call an election, you great big girl’s blouse.”
The theme of the exchanges between the two had centred around the Labour leader asking Johnson to publish details of the government’s no-deal planning documents, while the prime minister repeatedly challenged Corbyn to support his plan for a 15 October election.
As Corbyn was saying of the new prime minister: “He’s desperate, absolutely desperate to avoid scrutiny”, Johnson appeared to make the insult. It was immediately seized upon on social media, with users suggesting the comment was sexist and not fitting for the prime minister to say in parliament.
Free Dictionary: “A derogatory phrase used in jest to insult a man who other men believe is behaving in a weak or effeminate manner.”
“Call an election, you great big girl’s blouse”
