ITV Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid has DESTROYED Jeremy Corbyn and the rest of Labour for living in a ‘FANTASY WORLD’ after it emerged that the Tories are currently enjoying extending their lead over Labour by 24 points.
Unfortunately for Labour MP Chuka Umunna, he was caught in the firing line after agreeing to appear on the show with Tory rival MP Iain Duncan-Smith.
After Reid goaded Umunna by saying that the current headlines won’t make ‘great reading’ for party leader Jeremy Corbyn, the MP replied in a way that frankly just wound the presenter up.
He said: “This will be tough for Labour as it’s an usual election process,” admitted Umunna, 38. “Firstly there’s leaving the European Union, second thing is looking out for public services; the NHS is in crisis and is being starved of funds, and the economy has got to change.
“We’re the fifth most wealthiest country in the world.”
It was clear that Reid wasn’t convinced by this reply in the slightest.
She said: “How will you generate ‘decent’ jobs for all?” she squirmed. “How do you promise that? Are you going to promise zero unemployment? That’s a fantasy land – it’s impossible.”
Umunna fired back: “I’m not gong to deny it, we’ve got a low rate of unemployment, but there 700,000 vacancies.”
Reid interrupted: “So you’re going to force people to take those jobs?”
It was clear at this point that the whole argument was going round in circles, but it did demonstrate one clear point.
It showed the public that Labour candidates are indeed living in some sort of ‘fantasy,’ headed up by the greatest fantasist of them all!
How on earth can hundreds of thousands of jobs be created from nothing?
When you then add the fact that the vast majority of these candidates don’t even want this ‘chief fantasist’ in charge as it will scupper their own chances, you have to wonder why Labour are even bothering.
Believe us when we say that Theresa May knew EXACTLY what she was doing when she called this election.
