Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is facing calls to apologise after members of the House of Commons claimed he called Theresa May a “stupid woman” during Prime Minister’s Questions this afternoon.
Jeremy Corbyn has since told reporters he hadn’t called the Prime Minister a ‘stupid woman’, but had in fact called her a ‘bloody hopeless zombie bitch’ instead.
Cries of “shame” and “disgraceful” were heard from the Tory benches during the session.
And you know you’re in trouble when a party that sells arms to Saudi Arabia to bomb Syrian hopsitals think you are a disgrace.
A spokesman for Mr Corbyn backed up the Labour leader, telling press: “He did not call her a ‘stupid woman’. And lip reading is always open to doubt – he knows exactly what he said.”
He went on to add: “Although Jeremy Corbyn does think Theresa May is a stupid woman, he would never settle for such a basic insult, when he could also make reference to her inability to negotiate anything beyond a flight of stairs, her refusal to be killed (politically speaking) and her general hateful attitude to anyone who is not a card-carrying Tory.”
The Labour leader had “no time for misogynistic statements”, the spokesman added, after some Conservatives accused Mr Corbyn of being sexist.
We can only assume that this is because his time is taken up focusing on making vague anti-semitic statements instead, and that he will move on to misogyny when Israel has been put firmly in its place.
