One furious audience member took the Labour leader to task over his bonkers manifesto, which was published yesterday.

He ranted at Mr Corbyn: “Your reckless socialist ideas are genuinely terrifying to me my family and my friends and I think freedom would genuinely erode if you got to No10.”

But the leftie-boss hit back that he could do nothing about the ideas “in your head” and said he had been fighting for the freedom of others his whole life.

He said: “Freedom and rights in democracy are very important I’ve spent my life getting into hot water defending people because I think their humans rights in jeopardy.”

Mr Corbyn continued to face brutal questions about misogynism and anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

One audience member told the leftie boss he wasn’t buying the “nice old grandpa” and accused him of not standing up for former Labour MP Ruth Smeeth, a Jewish MP, after she was heckled a conference.

Mr Corbyn continued to face brutal questions about misogynism and anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.


It comes as…

  • Jeremy Corbyn was told his Marxist blueprint for Britain was ‘genuinely terrifying’
  • The leftie boss was laughed at by the audience as he tried to explain his Brexit plan
  • Mr Corbyn said there would not be 2nd Scottish indyref in “early years” of his term
  • Nicola Sturgeon told Mr Corbyn she would need his help if he wanted Labour in No10
  • </ul.

    ‘IT’S DISGRACEFUL’

    The man laid into the leftie boss saying: “I heard you talk about free speech and standing up for human rights.

    “I have two young daughters and what terrifies me is some of the Labour MPs, some of the female MPs, and the misogyny that has happened in the Labour Party.

    “They have been driven out of the party. I look at a video on YouTube of Ruth Smeeth particularly, because and I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt in terms of maybe people aren’t doing it in your name.

    “But I look at a video of Ruth Smeeth online where she was in a press conference with you and Ruth Smeeth, a Jewish MP, was heckled out of the press conference and there you are at the end of the press conference chatting happily to that same heckler.

    “I don’t buy this whole nice old grandpa. I see that video and that tells me all I need to know and I am terrified for my daughters because I see what you did in that video.

    “I don’t understand how you can say you stand up for human rights and free speech when that is how you support a Labour MP at a Labour press conference.

    “I think that is disgraceful.”

    Smeeth resigned in June 2016 in protest of Mr Corbyn’s leadership.

    Mr Corbyn replied: “Bad behaviour including misogyny is absolutely not acceptable.”

    The same audience member quipped back: “Why did you speak to that same heckler? Why do female MPs have to have bodyguards?”

    The Labour leader defended his actions saying: “You don’t know what was discussed in that conversation.”

    Mr Corbyn was forced to clarify his position on if he would campaign for Remain or Leave, after dodging the question NINE times during Tuesday night’s debate.

    He was met with a roar of laughter as he failed to answer Daniel Holt’s question again.

    Mr Corbyn said: “My strategy is to bring people together 1) we will negotiate 2)we will put that alongside remain in a referendum to put back to the people.

    “My role as the Prime Minister is to adopt a neutral stance.”

    Host Fiona Bruce asked him again at the end of his grilling if he really will remain neutral on Brexit.

    Unashamedly, he responded: “Yes, yes. You heard it here first on Question Time.”

    It comes as Mr Corbyn’s fantasy spending plans have been slammed as “not credible” by an economics expert who says they will hit ordinary Brits in the pocket.

    Your reckless socialist ideas are genuinely terrifying to me my family and my friends and I think freedom would genuinely erode if you got to No10.

    Jeremy Corbyn

    The Labour boss plans to pay for his Marxist vision of 1970s-style renationalisation by raising £82.9bn with a series of 12 tax hikes.

    But Paul Johnson, director of independent think-tank the Institute for Fiscal Studies, said it was “simply not credible” for Labour to raise the sum by slapping a tough tax on businesses and Britain’s highest earners.

    He told ITV: “You cannot raise that kind of money in our tax system without affecting individuals.”

    Mr Johnson was stunned by Labour’s radical spending plan.

    Ahead of the debate, he said: “It’s impossible to overstate just how extraordinary this manifesto in terms of the sheer scale of money being spent and raised through the tax system”.
