Jeremy Corbyn’s best moment at PMQs today came near the end when he laid into the PM repeatedly for ignoring the social care crisis.
Theresa May had little to say in response, at one point accusing Labour of not wanting to spend more on social care a minute after she said Labour wanted to spend too much.
Mr Speaker, in the Autumn Statement last week, the Chancellor spoke for over 50 minutes. During that time he didn’t once mention the NHS or social care.
1.2 million people are lacking the care they need. Why was there not one single penny more for social care, in the Autumn Statement?
After May’s evasive response, Corbyn came back to the same topic.
Even BBC journalists could see the PM’s discomfort
Methinks social care an issue where Theresa May on the defensive and knows it #PMQs

Corbyn still needs to keep hammering these points
