Mr Gardiner began by defending the Labour leader before he was targeted by the Tory.

Mr Gove took one final dig at the Labour politician, criticising him for not answering the question.
“Answering the question might help you,” he raged.
Mr Gardiner finished by claiming that he was happy to answer Mr Gove’s question but wanted to do it in a “calm and considered way”.
