'Stupid woman'

    I don't care... I don't care if he said 'stupid woman' or 'stupid people'. I don't care that a bunch of handbag clutching journos are suddenly debating Corbyn's potential ''misogyny''...

    Sort out Brexit you eejits.

    All of you, lock them in a room together [not parliament, a warehouse outside Stevenage or Wisbech], with no cameras to grand stand too and tell them they don't get food until they have a deal sorted. ****ing eejits the lot of them.

    And if Corbyn had said ''stupid man'' about ... Vince Cable or David Cameron... I doubt anyone would be going on about ''misandry''...

    So maybe the super-thin skinned bunch can take a hike too.

    Rant over.

    And yes, I obviously do care enough to post this, I'm a hypocrite... sue me.

    This seems to be empty at the moment, or is it too grand?

    He has agreed the first word was "stupid" in which case, the way his lips moved did not represent "people" for the second.

    Really? ... when I watched it, it looked like ''people'' as in the lips coming together for the 'p'... woman would make a 'o'...

    Not that I care either way... it's just theatrics...

    It looks like he said "woman" to me.
    Am I surprised? No. Do I care? Not really.
    Is there a single British politician whom I respect? No.
    They all seem to me to be "a shower of b*stards" - Small prize for anyone who recognises the quotation.

    Yeah, I was looking at exactly the same thing but didn't come to that conclusion. The point is he didn't say it out loud (whatever it was) and whether it was wise to even mutter in frustration or not, it is, as you say, just theatrics to go on about this.

    Saw it as it happened, before it was mentioned. I saw it as woman. I think that this will come back to haunt him.

    I guess the fact he is accused of saying this to our prime minister and that he also wants to be PM makes it harder to defend?

    This will now drag on, not least as 'professional' lip readers say he is indeed telling porkies.

    Must have been very uncomfortable for Bercow who had his own 'stupid woman' comments be swept under the carpet yet here he is being forced to be judge and jury over a man who may - may - have said the same.

    Good job this did not happen a week before leaving the EU as the papers and media make such a fuss about it no-one would notice we left without a deal.

    I'm not bad at lip reading. I can always tell whether a woman is ready to be kissed or ready to slap my face. He didn't say woman, he said wazzock.

    He called the party that contains Boris and Gove ‘Stupid’. And.... people are complaining about this....

    Nizeman reckons he said another word that starts with a w and ends with ers.

    From closely looking at the shape his lips made i don't think he said 'woman' . . .when i say 'woo' my lips form a gentle pout, his lips didn't do that at all . . . but as others have said, it might not have been 'people' he said, but something else entirely.

    I've just seen this on the news. He very, very clearly did say "woman".
    I hold him in low esteem in any case, but to watch him deny it, telling a bare-faced lie that he said "people" is staggering.
    A new low for Corbyn.

    No he did not say woman. He’s a socialist not a fascist like some on the Right. Jeremy isn’t like that. Anyone who thinks otherwise really does not know what they are talking about. Pathetic.

    You will believe what you like. It won't make you right.

    Unfortunately it shows Corbyn’s consistent habit of (to quote one of his backbencher) plucking a large defeat from the jaws of a small defeat.
