Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has denied that there was any altercation with the Prime Minister after PMQs on Wednesday.
Sir Keir told journalists that they were both simply continuing their discussions that were raised over PMQs.
On Wednesday there were reports that Sir Keir was “puce with anger” and that he was “wagging his finger aggressively” at Johnson.
During PMQs the leaders clashed as Johnson accused Sir Keir of repeatedly calling for the UK to stay in the European Medicines Agency after Brexit.
It has been said that Labour whip Chris Matheson had to lead Sir Keir away as their conversation became so heated as the Labour leader was “wagging his finger aggressively at the PM.”
Tory MP Mark Francois told the Sun newspaper, “As I was walking out of the chamber, I saw Sir Keir and PM standing near the entrance to the aye lobby.
“He was puce with anger, and wagging his finger aggressively at the PM, who was telling him to check the record.”
But an anonymous eyewitness told the Sun that Sir Keir had a “bit of a meltdown,” whilst a Labour source said “they had a perfectly reasonable conversation as they often do after PMQs.”
