Theresa May & Jeremy Corbyn at their mutual worst at her penultimate #PMQs. You’re racist. No you’re racist. You hate Jews. You hate Muslims. No apology or sincerity from either. Weaponising prejudice for political point scoring. Neither party is tackling its own bigotry

It’s May’s penultimate #PMQs. Corbyn goes in on climate change. @SKinnock on our PMQs panel thought he’d go in on No Deal. May ignores his question and raises anti-semitism issue “you still haven’t opened your eyes, you have failed the test of leadership. Apologise now”

What has it come to in the Labour Party when the only way Labour peers feel they can communicate with their leader @jeremycorbyn is to pay to take out an advert in @guardian! No major party has ever been this dysfunctional pic.twitter.com/tJU1QeVo50

This #PMQs is painful. Tories haven’t got a leg to stand on: Windrush, the hostile environment and their failure to tackle Islamophobia. But @jeremycorbyn has lost the moral high ground through his failure to act on antisemitism – is instead left throwing mud from the gutter.

The penultimate May/Corbyn #PMQs underway. I remember when it was always “your Welsh NHS is worse than my English NHS.”
Now it’s your antisemitism is worse than my Islamophobia.
British politics is an embarrassment.

Cricket mentioned considerably more at this #PMQs than Brexit.

Happy to debate scale of negative impact of No Deal on the economy – but terrifying that someone this close to a potential future government can think we’d actually be better off by adding barriers to access to our largest market. https://t.co/abs2D0vMrw

Birtherism. "You lie." Radical obstructionism. "Top priority" making Obama a one term President. Holding economy hostage over debt ceiling. Pointless govt shutdowns. Sending a letter to Iran saying Obama didn't speak for the USA. Hyperbolic criticism while Obama overseas. Etc Etc https://t.co/uI0dGeFnFM

It is very likely that many of Trump's own advisers don't believe his racist attacks are good politics for him.
