Labour MP John Woodcock says Jeremy Corbyn was a 'f***ing disaster' at PMQs

The MP is a persistent critic of Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn’s latest outing at Prime Minister’s Questions was a f***ing disaster”, according to a critical Labour MP.

John Woodcock, a persistent critic of the Labour leader, tweeted and then quickly deleted a stinging criticism of Mr Corbyn’s performance.

“F***ing disaster. Worse [sic] week for Cameron since he came in and that stupid f***ing list makes us into a laughing stock,” he posted, before quickly deleting it. 

A screenshot  of the tweet however began to circulate, and a system which post a notification whenever an MP deletes a tweet also verified its existence.

Mr Woodcock later said he was “sharing frustration with a colleague” – having accidentally posted a private message to his main timeline.

He said he and the colleague were “despairing at [the] way [the] Tories [are] getting away with it”.

This Wednesday the Labour leader attacked David Cameron over disability benefit cuts and pressed him on further U-turns and future policies.

Mr Cameron however hit back with jibes about a leaked list which purported to show which MPs a senior aide to Mr Corbyn believed to be “hostile” to him.

The Labour leader’s office denied it had seen the list before.

Mr Woodcock himself is included in the “hostile” category of the document. 

He has a narrow majority in the seat of Barrow and Furness, where employment is heavily based around the renewal of the Trident nuclear weapons system.

The MP, who supported last-placed Liz Kendall in the Labour leadership election, has persistently criticised Mr Corbyn over his stance on nuclear weapons. 

In September last year he was recorded telling a party gathering that Labour as “f***ed” under Mr Corbyn’s leadership.
