  • WATCH Jeremy Corbyn Mouths 'Stupid Woman' to PM May in Parliament

Conservative MP Andrea Leadsom then confronted Bercow over reports that he also called Leadsom a 'stupid woman, ' without apologising.

"There is a deep attack on women both from the far-right and the far-left and I think this has been fed by Brexit".

"Look behind you", she shouted, gesturing at the Labour benches, "they are not impressed and neither is the country".

But Tory MPs said they did not believe Mr Corbyn and said he must apologise.

The nearly immediate circulation of footage of Mr Corbyn prompted uproar in the Commons, with shouting and heckling as a succession of MPs demanded action from Speaker John Bercow.

Corbyn has been accused of misogyny after appearing to call Theresa May a "stupid woman" during Prime Minister's Questions.

"I know it's the pantomime season", she cried, "is he going to put a confidence vote?"

Corbyn's remark was captured by television cameras during the question-and-answer session in parliament that British leaders have to endure every Wednesday.

But as the PM sat down to cheers, Mr Corbyn seemed to mutter: 'Stupid woman'.


Jeremy Corbyn has announced his immediate intention to table a motion of no confidence in Theresa May, saying that putting off parliament's Brexit vote until January is "unacceptable".

Mr Corbyn flatly denied it, claiming he was actually saying: "Stupid people".

He repeatedly insisted he wanted to see the evidence before "pronouncing" on Mr Corbyn's "innocence or guilt".

As British media outlets enlisted lipreaders to try to determine what exactly Corbyn had said, actor Rob Lowe was among those who offered their opinions on social media.

Nick Ferrari asked the Deputy Labour leader how we should view politicians at such a time when there are huge issues to be discussed and politicians are getting "caught up" over whether a single politician had said a certain word.

Mr. Bercow responded, stating that the matter had already been resolved in previous sessions and that his comments had been fully explained.

Mr Bercow, who was being shouted at and heckled by Tory MPs, responded saying: "I can not be expected to deprecate the behaviour of an individual which I did not witness".

Conservative MP Anna Soubry accused Mr Bercow of bias against her party, suggesting if it had been the other way round he would have acted differently.
