Life in the media firing line does not look a comfortable place for Labour challenger
Jess Phillips suffered another ‘car-crash’ interview this morning on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, as she was challenged over comments made on Sunday’s Marr show on the BBC about rejoining the European Union:
As a Corbyn critic, Ms Phillips has had an easy ride from the media for the past four years or so – all the more so as she cosied up to Tory Jacob Rees-Mogg and criticised colleague Laura Pidcock for not wanting to be friends with Tory MPs.
As a would-be candidate for leadership of the Labour party, interviewers are less likely to simply accept answers without testing – and under this relatively mild examination, Ms Phillips looks a long way from comfortable or convincing.
