Question Time leaders' debate: Reaction after Johnson grilled on racism and Corbyn confirms neutral Brexit stance

Jeremy Corbyn has confirmed he would remain neutral in a Brexit referendum during a heated Question Time special where Boris Johnson was booed over his Brexit stance.

The party leaders endure a 30-minute grilling from the audience, where Mr Johnson came under fire over racist and homophobic remarks he previously made in newspaper articles.

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson was given a tough time by Leavers and Remainers over her party’s pledge to scrap Brexit while Nicola Sturgeon insisted she would prop up a Corbyn-led government – at the price of an independence referendum.
