Theresa May mocks hardline Brexiteer by pretending to doze off in Commons debate | The Sun

THERESA May pretended to doze off during a Commons debate yesterday while listening to a hardline Euroscepetic.

The ex-Prime Minister mockingly fell to the benches for a sleep when Brexiteer Sir Bill Cash brought up the Maastricht Treaty – signed more than thirty years ago to create the EU.

The Tory MP’s unexpected comments came as MPs paid tribute to Baroness Betty Boothroyd who was the first female Commons Speaker in 700 years of the role.

In her tribute, Mrs May said: “She reminded us of the importance in this place of humanity, because she showed that so well through everything that she did.”

Labour’s Charlotte Nichols revealed she dressed up as Boothroyd on her fourth birthday saying she was “absolutely obsessed” with her.

Boothroyd, who was MP for West Bromwich from 1973 to 2000, died on Sunday at the age of 93.
