‘Appalling’ Boris Johnson in ‘stocks’ and cage stunts at London Dungeon blasted by MP

The Prime Minister was also shown in a cell, with PR firm Stripe Communications justifying the snaps by saying the tourist attraction was showing the kinds of “historical punishments” Mr Johnson may once have faced. The move has raised eyebrows at the end of a week which has seen tempers flare after the Supreme Court’s decision to rule Mr Johnson’s suspension of Parliament unlawful. Mr Johnson himself has faced severe criticism over his use of the phrase “Surrender Bill”.

Tory MP Daniel Kawczynski was one of those unimpressed by the London Dungeon’s mocking of Mr Johnson.

He said: “I think it’s appalling. The Guardianistas complain about him saying Surrender Bill but look at the vitriol he is facing.

“It’s because he is such a threat to the liberal elites, the kind of people who will try and denigrate him at every turn.”

Mr Kawczynski, who splits his week between London and Shropshire, home to his Shrewsbury and Atcham constituency, said it was significant that the venue in question was in London.

He said: “Londoners are very unrepresentative of the rest of the country.

“It’s the home of this intellectually superior elite who think the rest of the country is incapable of making any important decisions.

“But mark my words, we are going to bite back.”

A London Dungeon spokesman said: “The London Dungeon is committed to delivering an entertaining, informative and immersive experience showcasing the darker aspects of London’s history.

Despite the pleas, International Development Secretary Alok Sharma defended Boris Johnson’s decision to dub the Benn Law, which commits the Government to extending Article 50 if no exit deal is agreed, the “surrender act”.

He said the law, drafted and passed by Opposition MPs against the Government’s will, was “a form of capitulation” to Brussels.

Mr Sharma told the BBC’s Today programme: “If you look at the fundamentals of what that Bill does, it does surrender our ability to have effective discussions with the European Union and it does surrender our ability to be able to walk away from the table if that is what happens.”

“We are surrendering our ability to negotiate effectively with the EU.

“If you were going into a negotiation with both hands tied behind your back, would you not think it somehow a form of capitulation?”

The PM’s top aide Dominic Cummings was also unrepentant yesterday, saying the fury of some voters was unsurprising, as the Church of England criticised MPs’ language as “not worthy of our country”.
