Steve Baker was asked six times to explain how Jeremy Corbyn had “betrayed his country” in a scathing interview this afternoon.
Andrew Neil tore in to the Brexit minister in an interview about the allegations that were revealed by The Sun newspaper.
Defence secretary Gavin Williamson said Corbyn had “betrayed his country”, but most of the allegations have since been proved to be shaky at best.
The BBC presenter said: “Surely the real scandal isn’t what Mr Corbyn has done or not done, it’s the outright lies and disinformation that your fellow Tories are spreading.
“That’s the real scandal isn’t it?”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
