Piers Morgan slams breathtaking arrogance of Labour ‘chump’ Barry Gardiner

Mr Corbyn was taking questions after unveiling 451 pages of uncensored documents which he claims show the NHS is up for sale in a Tory Brexit deal with the US. But when he was again asked to apologise to the Jewish community for antisemitism within the party, a visibly annoyed shadow international development secretary Mr Gardiner intervened.

He said: “Do you have a question about the issue we are actually discussing today or was that just an opportune moment to get a dig in about something else?”

His reaction was swiftly condemned on social media.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan tweeted: “Wow. The breathtaking arrogance of this chump telling journalists what questions to ask.

“They should all ignore him and pummel Corbyn about antisemitism.”

Mr Corbyn did go on to address the anti-semitism row later in the press conference.

He said: “I have made it very clear antisemitism is completely wrong in our society, our party did make it clear when I was elected leader, and after, that antisemitism was unacceptable in any form in our party or our society.

“And did indeed offer its sympathies and apologies to those that had suffered.”

Today’s election event came after a torrid day for Mr Corbyn in which he refused to apologise over anti-semitism despite condemnation from the Chief Rabbi.

And his claims on the NHS were dismissed by the Tories who insist the documents on which he based them only explicitly mentioned the NHS four times.

Trade Secretary Liz Truss said: “Jeremy Corbyn is getting desperate and is out-and-out lying to the public about what these documents contain.

“As we have consistently made clear: the NHS will not be on the table in any future trade deal and the price that the NHS pays for drugs will not be on the table.

“This sort of conspiracy theory fuelled nonsense is not befitting of the leader of a major political party.”

Mr Corbyn insisted a Labour Government would be “the most anti-racist Government you’ve ever seen”.

He said: “Because that is what I’ve spent my whole life doing – fighting against racism – and I will die fighting against racism.”
