THORNBERRY BACKED CARILLION: Labour’s Emily Thornberry heckled Theresa May over Carillion… but MP forgot she once backed the failed construction giant

EMILY THORNBERRY was left red-faced at PMQs when the Labour MP heckled Theresa May over the collapse of Carillion.

Corbyn grilled the Prime Minister on why the government had awarded more than £2bn of contracts to Carillion, even after the company had issued three profit warnings and its share price was falling.

Mrs May rebuffed Jezza and said that if the government pulled out of contracts whenever a profit warning was issued, it would lead to companies failing and jobs being lost.

Mr Corbyn said that the government was “deeply negligent of the crisis coming down the line.”

Conservative MPs went wild and May said Corbyn had not asked her a question.

He replied and said asked if the Government had been negligent or not “and they clearly have been”. He added: “Tory MPs might shout but the reality is over 20,000 Carillion workers are very worried about their future.”

May later responded to a heckle from Emily Thornberry and said that the shadow foreign secretary had praised Carillion in the past.

Thornberry then asked, “Have I?”… yes, and we have picture proof.

Thornberry even wore a Carillion hat…
