ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn have traded barbs on the floor of parliament during question time on Wednesday (January 18). Corbyn dubbing the PM the 'Irony lady' rather than the 'Iron lady', referring to Margaret Thatcher as he questioned May about Tuesday's (January 17) major speech when she outlined her government's plans for Brexit. "Yesterday, Mr Speaker, the Prime Minister finally provided some detail. Can I urge her to stop her threat of a bargain basement Brexit, a low-paying tax haven on the shores of Europe," he said. The Prime Minister responded by saying her speech had set out a plan for a 'global Britain', and took a swipe at the opposition leader, saying, "I've got a plan, he doesn't have a clue".
