Jeremy Corbyn celebrated the final PMQs (Prime Minister’s Questions) today by once again trouncin Theresa May. May had no answers and both looked and sounded flustered, descending ever further into snidery and falsehood with each attempted resort.
Corbyn looked relaxed and not in a mood to take prisoners. He cut May’s legs out from under her with a perfectly-timed reminder, just after she’d tried the old nonsense about not affording a pay-rise for the public sector, that she’d managed to find funds ok to buy the DUP’s support and after that she floundered, sounding bitter and outmatched.
Corbyn is steadily dismantling each of May’s worn-out soundbites and grinding the pieces underfoot, forcing May either to abandon them or, if she clings to them, to expose her intellectual and moral bankruptcy.
A particular case in point today was the nonsense of Tory claims of economic success when there are 6 million people who don’t earn a living wage – and an assault on supposed Tory success in creating jobs when more than half of people in poverty are in working households – one in eight working people in this country live in poverty.
Corbyn’s performance was assured. May’s was emphatically not – clinging to the ‘work is the best route out of poverty as her only response to Corbyn when he’d just demonstrated that it clearly is not. Watch and share:
