WATCH: Clive Lewis slammed after telling Momentum audience member to ‘get on your knees, b*tch’

Senior Labour figures have rounded on Clive Lewis after a video emerged of him telling an audience member to “get on your knees, b*tch”.


Footage of a Momentum event shows Mr Lewis making the comment, with audience members laughing in response. 

Former deputy Labour leader Harriet Harman described the remarks as “inexplicable” and  “inexcusable” and Jess Phillips said she was "appalled".

Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy tweeted: “Its not ok….reinforces menace that men have the physical power to force compliance”.

Tory MP Mims Davies described it as “astounding inappropriate language” and urged Ms Phillips to put her colleague on a training course.

Trade Minister Greg Hands also weighed in, saying: “There’s always been an unpleasant misogynism in the Hard Left, but this is particularly repellent from a senior Labour MP.”
