Astonishing moment Angela Rayner appears to call Tory MP 'scum' in House of Commons

This is the astonishing moment Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner appears to call a Conservative MP “scum” in the House of Commons. It happened when Chris Clarkson insinuated members of the Labour frontbench believe the coronavirus pandemic is a “good crisis” to exploit. This was in reference to shadow education secretary Kate Green after she previously urged Labour Party activists not to "let a good crisis go to waste". Green later apologised.
