David Cameron loves to share a chortle in the House of Commons.
Not one to miss out on some contemporaneous fun, the Prime Minister decided to reel off a few Shakespearean witticisms in the House of Commons today during Prime Minister’s questions and attack his opposite number, Jeremy Corbyn, in the process.
It came after one of his MP’s hailed Shakespeare as the “greatest living” playwright. Nadhim Zahawi, the Conservative MP for Statford-upon-Avon, called for the country to “unite” in marking the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death (which presumably he’d forgotten up until that very second).
“Can I invite my Right Honourable friend, the whole House and the world to come and celebrate the greatest living bard,” he said.
Well celebrate he did, Nadhim, celebrate he did.
