FOREIGN Secretary Boris Johnson raged at a Labour frontbencher over the party’s unclear stance on Brexit.

Mr Johnson, a vocal anti-Brussels campaigner, lost his cool as Andrew Gwynne failed to say if Labour wanted to keep the UK in the single market.

And he said hapless Jeremy Corbyn would be unfit to lead divorce talks with Brussels if he wins next month’s crunch election.

The Cabinet Minister said: “He doesn’t have a clue about whether he wants to be in the single market or out of it.”

He then pointed his finger at Mr Gwynne, Labour’s head of elections and campaigns, and grilled him over the issue.

Mr Johnson said: “Do you want to be in the single market or out of it? In or out? In or out? In or out? Do you want to be in or out?”

“The most important question this country has faced in the last 50 years is whether we are going to be in the European Union or out of it.

“The British people have voted to come out. Are you saying you want to stay in the single market? You’re out of the single market, are you?”

Mr Gwynne, an ally of hard-left Mr Corbyn, hit back by telling the top Tory: “You know what our position is.”

But Mr Johnson responded by frantically waving his hands and urging Sky News voters not to elect a Labour government.

He said: “Don’t send Jeremy Corbyn to negotiate for us, they don’t have a clue about these negotiations.”

Presenter Adam Boulton was forced to intervene following the extraordinary showdown between the pair, which stunned viewers.

Twitter user Grant Stanley‏ said Mr Johnson won the battle, saying: “Gwynne squirming as if caught in quicksand.”

Alex Orka also hailed the Foreign Secretary, writing: “Brilliant! Boris laying into Labour’s little puppet.”
