Iain Dale was joined this morning by Corbynista Grace Blakeley on Good Morning Britain. The pair were there to discuss reports that an autistic teenager who threw a young boy off the Tate Modern's viewing platform had warned his carers beforehand that he planned to push someone off a building in London.

Blakeley of Tribune magazine began by laying the blame squarely at the feet of austerity and the reduced budgets of local councils, who have less money for mental health services. It took LBC's Iain Dale to point out though that human error and poor judgment might be more to blame in this case, considering the attacker had seemingly declared his intentions beforehand. But it didn't take long for Dale to be shouted down by the other two panellists on the show.

After struggling to get a word in for almost a minute, Dale eventually announced he'd had enough, promptly removed his microphone and walked off screen.
