It hasn't been a great year for the mother of all parliaments and the final session of the year ended in controversy with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's alleged comment towards Theresa May. Corbyn has denied that he called May a stupid woman but there are many who doubt him. I have watched the video clip on numerous occasions and it does appear that he mothed the infamous words, but who knows. However, the image of parliament has been damaged not just by Corbyn but by the speaker John Bercow who failed to deal with the incident on the spot. Bercow should have demanded that Corbyn apologise, and end of story. Whether he said "stupid woman" or "stupid people", he still should have offered his regrets.
