Labour's Dawn Butler clashed with conservative commentator Iain Dale on Jeremy Vine's Channel Five show earlier today.  The pair were discussing the coronacrisis via two video links when Butler declared that the PM was "sending people to catch the virus".  Dale took exception to her remark, calling it "disgraceful".  Watch below.

Dale has since tweeted: "I like Dawn Butler, but seriously, for a leading frontline politician to speak like this is surely the height of irresponsibility.  No politician, of whatever hue, would deliberately want to infect people.  Keir Starmer would never say this and nor should anyone else".  Jeremy Corbyn would have.
