Instead he called the EU stubborn, for agreeing to the deal which was negotiated by Britain’s last prime minister Theresa May. Raab called the backstop – a hotly contested part of Theresa May’s deal – undemocratic, though still didn’t come up with any examples of UK “flexibility”.
Naturally, people on Twitter weren't impressed by Raab's latest blunder.
He's got two degrees, was an international lawyer, and is still, somehow, a complete fucking moron. https://t.co/ZsDcvH8QsY
It looks like we can add "not knowing what flexible means" to Raab's blooper list, alongside "not knowing Britain is an island". As he assumes his new role, we're sure this won't be the last cringe-worthy Raab moment.
