LBC presenter blasted Jeremy Corbyn over his political point scoring off the back of the Grenfell disaster

Sunday Express columnist Mr Ferrari then launched a scathing attack on Mr Corbyn, who blamed austerity for the horror fire at Wednesday’s PMQs – the first since the June 8 snap election.

Mr Ferrari said: “I thought that was one of the lowest moments I’ve seen in Prime Minister’s questions in some time.

“There are people now, even as we speak, who don’t know where their loved ones are, who don’t know where their families are.

“There are incredibly diligent men and women – and I apologise, this is a graphic image – up to three feet of broken appliances, ash, goodness knows what else.

“To see the leader of a political party try and score a cheap point over that, I thought was absolutely reprehensible.”

The LBC presenter also attacked John McDonnell for his comments over the tragedy, after the Shadow Chancellor accused the Government of “murder” over their political decisions.

Pounding his fist on the desk, Mr Ferrari added: “There is a time for able politicians… to debate

“But while those brave men and women are still searching for fragments of bone or teeth it is not the time to get political about it.”

Ferrari was referring to the comments: “What the tragedy of Grenfell Tower has exposed is the disastrous effects of austerity.

“The disregard for working-class communities, the terrible consequences of deregulation and cutting corners.””

Well done to Mr Ferrai for his excellent speech, it was long overdue but I’m happy someone has the guts to say it and put Corbyn in his place.
