He needs to concentrate less on the soundbites and more on making people want to vote Labour (rather than anything but Tory).
One might have hoped for a little more originality from Keir. His reference appears to have been nicked from the US Republican party insider who used the phrase in reference to Donald Trump's impeachment. (There were also some commentators who changed the 'p' in 'ships' to a 't').

However it actually pre-dates that incident by a long way, as Joanne Martine Woolfolk used it in her book on astrology in 1977 - and there's no guarantee that she hadn't also borrowed it from somewhere.
Chris, lawyers rely on precedent rather than originality.

Doesn't he have a scriptwriter?
Is this the guy who still has a possible fine pending and stated he would leave if he was found guily - pot/kettle

It's been used before. Tedious.
I love how Captain Hindsight seems to be completely lacking in any form of intelligent riposte to the No 10 meltdown. Step forward fatticus or gulliver - even you two could do better than your beloved leader, second only to that Communist Corbyn and Pres. Putain not that far behind,
