UK Prime Minister Theresa May has entered yet another fiery clash with Jeremy Corbyn during Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons but for the fifth week running, a Brexit silence descended on Westminster.
The Prime Minister has vowed to punish disloyal ministers as she prepares to launch a new vote on her withdrawal agreement bill next month.
Successfully getting the legislation through the Commons over the coming weeks could accelerate Mrs May’s departure from Number 10, with the Prime Minister under increasing pressure to announce her leaving date after three years in the hot seat.
After Corbyn paid tribute to two Labour MPs elected 40 years ago, May said Margaret Thatcher was elected 40 years ago.
Corbyn says nine hedge fund tycoons have donated millions to the Conservative party. Is this a government for the many or for the few.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn ignored EU exit for the 5th week during today’s PMQs.
But PM May entered yet another fiery clash with Jeremy Corbyn during Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons when the government was accused of being “in the pockets of an elite few”.
Jeremy Corbyn revealed “in the last two years nine of the richest hedge fund tycoons have donated £2.9 million to the Conservative Party”.
Theresa May hit back at Prime Minister’s Questions, saying that “income inequality is down since 2010” when the Tories came into office, adding her party “want everyone to be better off, everyone to have good jobs and everyone to have a better life”.
But the Labour leader said the Nobel Prize-winning economist Sir Angus Deaton had said the UK “risks having extreme inequality levels of pay, wealth and health”, asking: “Is that something the Prime Minister is proud of?”
