Blustering Boris Johnson has been tripped up on live radio after he attacked Jeremy Corbyn for voting against anti-terror laws.
The Foreign Secretary was caught out when the BBC reminded him he also opposed a key law – putting him on the same side as the Labour leader.
The mop-haired Old Etonian and Islington socialist joined forces to defeat far-reaching laws that were planned in the wake of the July 7 bombings on London.
Tony Blair suffered his first House of Commons defeat as Prime Minister on 9 November 2005 when MPs voted against 90-day detention for terror suspects.
Boris Johnson and many other Tories joined 49 Labour MPs, including Jeremy Corbyn , in the same voting lobby to defeat the measure.
Mr Johnson, who is crashing into the election campaign with two days to go with a speech this morning, said it was “weird” for Mr Corbyn to criticise security failings.
He added: “He consecrated his parliamentary career to opposing counter-terrorism measures.”
But BBC Radio 4 Today host Mishal Husain shut down Mr Johnson – by saying even Theresa May had opposed some Labour anti-terror laws.
And she asked how he had voted on the controversial 90-day law.
He replied: “Well, er, there are, there are, of course there are measures I have, er, not supported myself.”
