However, Corbyn’s spokesman has stated that the leader “did not call her a stupid woman, so I don’t think there are any grounds for an apology”.

James Cleverly, the Conservative deputy chairman, also told media that he heard Jeremy Corbyn call May a “stupid woman”. A number of Conservative MPs, including the Commons leader, Andrea Leadsom, the Conservative vice-chair, Paul Scully, and the former Tory chair Patrick McLoughlin raised the matter with May in the House of Commons, with McLoughlin asking the Speaker, John Bercow, to censure Corbyn.
Speaker John Bercow refused to intervene, saying he did not see the exchange.
