"FYI- I have to say, I saw Jeremy Corbin call the Prime Minister a "stupid woman" with my own eyes watching on (at) SkyNewsPolitics", Lowe tweeted.

The Prime Minister was mocking Corbyn during a clash over the government's Brexit deal, at which point he was caught on parliamentary cameras muttering words to himself.

Corbyn's spokesman insisted the Labour leader had said "stupid people" in reference to lawmakers on the governing Conservative side.

Mr Corbyn told the Commons a few hours later: "During Prime Minister's Question Time today, I referred to those who I believe were seeking to turn a debate about the national crisis facing our country into a pantomime as "stupid people".

A clip of Jeremy Corbyn making the comment is being shared widely on social media and appears to show Jeremy Corbyn mouthing the words "stupid woman" at Theresa May.

China accused of 'tit-for-tat' over detention of Canadian woman
David Mulroney, a former ambassador to China, said it would be highly unusual if the third arrest is a coincidence. Consular officials are providing assistance to the detainee's family, Global Affairs Canada said.

"I think it is incumbent on all of us in the House of Commons to be careful about the language that we use", she told reporters.

But the Conservatives continued their attack on the Labour leader and attempted to drum up support for Mrs May's party as the dispute rumbled on.

As lawmakers shouted at each other across the debating chamber, Commons Speaker John Bercow said he had not seen or heard the alleged incident and could not rule on it.

Corbyn mouthed the words after clashing with May over her decision to delay until January a Commons vote on her unpopular Brexit deal - just weeks before Britain leaves the European Union on March 29.

Asked if this nonetheless constituted not using respectful language, Corbyn said: "I muttered it to myself, actually, in parliament, and you and your colleagues in the media seem utterly obsessed with this".

One minister, Andrea Leadsom, reminded him of accusations that he called her a "stupid woman" earlier this year - claims he denied.

In a video message on Thursday, Mr Corbyn said: "I was accused of saying something I didn't say".

It brought condemnation from Tory MPs, with party chairman Brandon Lewis urging him to either "apologise or clarify" what he had mouthed.

It's not the first time a male political leader has been accused of using sexist language.
