CAR CRASH: Gardiner Grilled On Marr
Barry Gardiner, Labour’s Shadow International Trade Secretary, had a morning to forget on the Marr show today.
Emma Barnett, standing in for Mr Marr, grilled the frontbencher over an audio recording where he can be heard describing Labour policy on Brexit as “b*******”. Ms Barnett asked if he was “grateful” to Jeremy Corbyn for keeping him in a job given his outburst.
Mr Gardiner denied “rubbishing” Labour policy saying:
”our position should have been to say they [the Conservatives] have said they will to secure the exact same benefits [of membership of the Single Market and Customs Union] and we are going to hold them to standard.”
He alleged that the audio recording had been paraphrased. Ms Barnett, undeterred, insisted that Gardiner had been “kept on” by Corbyn despite describing his Brexit tests as “rubbish”.
