    A Sky News anchor had the mother of all Freudian slips while speaking to long-serving MP Frank Field who has just resigned the Labour whip.

    What was intended to be “Labour leadership” by a twist of fate turned into “Labour sh*t” in an embarrassing blunder by Sky News host Samantha Washington.

    "Your accusation that the Labor sh*t — the Labor leadership – is becoming a 'force for anti-Semitism' has been called a grotesque slur by other MPs in your party," she said.

    Upon realizing the gaffe, she swiftly corrected herself while interviewing veteran MP Frank Field, who has just resigned as a Labour parliamentarian and decided to go it alone as an independent in protest of Jeremy Corbyn’s failure to tackle increasing expressions of anti-Semitism within the party.

    shit, gaffe, blunder, Sky News, Labour party, Frank Field, Jeremy Corbyn
