Rishi Sunak is continuing to resist calls to apologise for his transgender joke in the Commons this week, after he was grilled on the row during an appearance on local radio.

The Prime Minister, who is visiting constituencies in the South West, was repeatedly pressed on whether he would say sorry to Brianna Ghey's father and her family after Peter Spooner called the jibe "dehumanising" and "degrading".

Mr Sunak had accused Sir Keir Starmer of being incapable of "defining a woman" in an attack on Labour U-turns in the Commons, while Esther Ghey, Brianna's mother, visited Parliament.

The comments sparked widespread criticism, with some Tory MPs also conceding that the Prime Minister had made a mistake in his remarks. Try MEN Premium now for FREE...
