'Theresa May looking genuinely rattled' - Jeremy Corbyn praised for PMQs performance

Jeremy Corbyn asked Theresa may about local councils

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

Jeremy Corbyn has been praised for his performance at PMQs, after asking Theresa May about Northamptonshire County Council.

The Labour leader asked whether the Conservatives were to blame on a national scale or a local scale, after the Tory-run council delared effective bankruptcy last month. 

A report recommended that it should be run by external commissioners and later split into two smaller authorities, according to The Guardian

The Prime Minister responded to Corbyn's question by claiming Conservative councils cost less and the problems at the council were not due to underfunding. 

Many believe May came across as if she wasn't sure of the situation in Northamptonshire, with one commentator saying: "Corbyn just smashed Theresa May out of the ball park."
