Roundheads And Cavaliers

Corbyn is a roundhead and Johnson a cavalier.

The civil war has never really come to an end- and it's not unusual for roundhead to face cavalier across the despatch box. The most significant such pairings were Attlee and Churchill, Gladstone and Disraeli. Blair was a cavalier with a roundhead lieutenant breathing down his neck in the shape of Gordon Brown. Thatcher confused us all by being a roundhead in a plumed hat.
