‘An over-promoted bath toy’: Celebrities slam Boris Johnson
Hugh Grant, Stephen Fry and Philip Pullman criticise plans to suspend parliament
Celebrities were quick to vent their frustration on Twitter after the British prime minister, Boris Johnson, yesterday announced his plans to suspend the current parliamentary session.
The actor and broadcaster Stephen Fry said Johnson’s decision to prorogue parliament was a “a sick, cynical brutal and horribly dangerous coup d’état”. Courtney Love then responded to Fry, saying that the situation in the UK is "insane".
On Wednesday Johnson said he wanted to prorogue parliament in order to bring forward his Government’s new legislative agenda, focused on Britain after Brexit. The decision has been met with growing anger, with more than a million people signing a petition asking Johnson not to suspend parliament, and thousands protesting in Westminster on Wednesday night.
