A hilarious video is making the rounds on social media showing Conservative MP Sam Gyimah ripping off a line from Harry Potter in support of the PM.
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Prisons, Probation, Rehabilitation and Sentencing made an emphatic statement about Theresa May’s castigation of Donald Trump’s recent Islamophobic tweets on BBC Question Time last night.
He said: “It takes great bravery to stand up to your enemies, it takes even more bravery to stand up to your friends.”
The line is taken from a speech given by Albus Dumbledore in reference to Neville Longbottom’s act of bravery in standing up to fellow Hogwarts pupils Harry, Hermione and Ron in the hope of preventing Gryffindor from being docked house points.
