Labour a 'laughing stock', May tells Corbyn

The prime minister said Labour was a "laughing stock" as she poked fun the "traingate" story.

Last month, Jeremy Corbyn was filmed sitting on the floor of a train complaining about "completely ram-packed carriages".

But CCTV was later released showing him appearing to walk past empty seats.

Theresa May said everything Mr Corbyn says "tell us all we need to know about modern Labour".

She said: "The train's left the station, the seats are all empty, the leader's on the floor - even on rolling stock they're a laughing stock."

PM: Tories have cracked down on corporate tax evasion

The prime minister responded to Labour's questions about Google's "sweetheart" tax deal by blaming the previous Labour government for failing to collect funds from the internet giant.

"We're taking about tax that should have been collected under a Labour government," David Cameron told Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn at today's Prime Minister's Questions.

Watch David Cameron's passionate defence of tax collection under the Tories:

I'm absolutely clear that no government has done more than this one to crack down on tax evasion.

...We've put in place the diverted profit tax that means this company and other companies will pay more in future and more than they ever paid under Labour, where the tax rate for Google was 0%.

– David Cameron

Mr Cameron also said that the Conservative party has raised an extra £100 billion from businesses by changing tax laws.

Mr Corbyn accused the prime minister of failing to answer his question - whether he disputes that Google is paying around 3% tax in the UK.
