Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn locked horns once again in another feisty account in the Commons. Lib Dem MP Layla Moran obviously wasn’t particularly impressed, labelling the half-hour a ‘bear pit’ of insults and vitriol. Since it was Halloween, both were in on the act, creepily coming out with the same barrage of tendentious drivel with the usual lot of soundbites.

Corbyn once again quoted another of his friends who had sent him letter complaining about a government he doesn’t run, saying that ‘Sasha’ had been asked by her school for funds, but Mrs T replied with more fun figures about how the schools budget had been increased under her administration.
