Michael Gove ended the no confidence debate in the Commons by denouncing Jeremy Corbyn. But perhaps unsurprisingly his criticism of the Labour leader did not go down well with those on the opposite benches. His comments about Corbyn were shouted down by Labour MPs, who yelled 'shame on you'. Here's what Gove said to rile them up:

'If the leader of the opposition won't stand up against Putin when he attacks people in this country...if he will not stand up for this country when the critical national security questions are being asked, how can we possibly expect him to stand up for us in European negotiations?'

Mr S thinks Gove might have a point...
