CORBYN called Theresa May “stupid woman”. He knows it, his aides know it, his supporters know it, professional lip-readers know it . . . everyone knows it.
The misogyny and disrespect is bad enough — especially from the man who trades on his veneer of civility and his allegedly “kinder, gentler” politics.
The real measure of him is that he fled the Commons before he could be called to account for it — then made up a cock-and-bull story to avoid being forced to apologise once he was summoned back.
This is the coward and liar Labour want to install in No10.
But the party’s venality gets worse.
Because when Speaker John Bercow was himself then accused of calling a Tory “stupid woman”, Labour Remainer Margaret Beckett stood up for him and hollered at the Tory benches.
Not for her the solidarity shown by other female MPs across the House. Oh no. Bercow can do no wrong so long as he helps her and her pals reverse Brexit.
God help us that our politicians have sunk this low.
They're still not quite grasping the whole "Leave means leave" thing:
THE SUN SAYS Britain must be ready for Brexit on March 29 without a deal from Brussels
THE EU no longer even pretends it wants warm relations with us after Brexit.
The barrage of punitive threats it has issued to our expats, tourists and firms in the event of no-deal is openly hostile.
There is no guarantee Brits living on the continent could stay despite us having promised that for EU citizens here.
Our airlines would be barred from flying from the EU to the rest of the world.
Brussels even declared war on our pets, intending to annul their passports.
Some of it is malice. When has Britain been anything but courteous to them?
But these are mainly scare tactics aimed at strong-arming Tory MPs into backing Theresa May’s deal.
Yet the EU also wants us simply to trust it to eventually release us from the deal’s restrictive “Irish backstop” which cripples our trading future. Why would we? All trust is gone. Brussels has spent two years destroying it.
Without a binding guarantee, The Sun cannot see the deal getting the nod.
We must be ready for Brexit on March 29 without it.
