On Wednesday, Liverpool Labour MP Dan Carden tweeted a comment triggered by a display of arrogance and contempt by Tory MPs during Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) that was astonishing even by their low standards.
The tweet clearly struck a chord with the people of this country, as it was widely shared – but the display itself needs to be seen and heard to fully grasp just how despicable it was.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn challenged the Prime Minister about perverse Tory priorities, asking her whether the leadership ambitions of Tory multimillionaires was more important to her party than the jobs and fears of thousands of BMW workers whose livelihoods are threatened by Tory incompetence over Brexit negotiations.
As Corbyn observed, clearly it was a rhetorical question – the answer is an obvious yes.
But as Corbyn spoke of those workers and their threatened jobs jeers, shouts and laughter grew to deafening levels from the Tory benches – and from a few cowards hiding among them, judging by his comment on finally being able to resume after Speaker John Bercow silenced the Tory sociopaths with a scathing rebuke:
No wonder the Tories are continually trying to get rid of Bercow.
But more importantly, the spectacle of Tories – yet again – finding the troubles and concerns of the rest of us a source of amusement and derision needs to be seen and understood across this nation.
Corbyn is the only political leader fighting for the many and in a position to get into power and do something about it.
