Watch as Jeremy Corbyn makes huge blunder in clip shared on his OWN Twitter page

JEREMY CORBYN made a huge blunder in the House of Commons as eagle-eyed social media users noticed him appear to say 'erection' instead of 'direction' during a heated debate with Prime Minister Boris Johnson ahead of the prorogation of Parliament for five weeks.

The Labour leader was savaged online for his on-air slip up as he leaned across the table to give a scathing attack to Mr Johnson following hours of debates in Commons on Monday night. Mr Corbyn’s mispronunciation sparked some online backlash as Twitter users asked if they had heard him correctly. Despite this, the Labour leader still shared his impassioned speech with subtitles on his own Twitter.

He said: “Tonight he will be attempting to prorogue Parliament for one of the longest prorogations there has ever been.

“Shutting down parliament, shutting down democracy, avoiding questions, taking this country over a cliff of a no deal exit with all the damage that will do to the poorest and most vulnerable communities in our society and all the damage it will do to trade and jobs.

“All because he wants to take this country into the erection (direction) of a trade deal solely with the USA than anybody else.”

His comments come as Speaker John Bercow sensationally protested leaving the House of Commons following the prorogation.

Sarah Clarke, the Lady Usher of the Black Rod ordered the Speaker of the house to leave his seat for the five-week-long suspension of Parliament.

Mr Bercow, a prominent Remainer, said he will stand down from his role on the current Brexit deadline October 31.

As he left his chair in the formal suspension, Remainers could be heard shouting “shame on you” at Conservative MPs. Labour MPs praised Mr Bercow and shook his hand as he left.

Mr Bercow said: “I will play my part, this is not, however, a normal prorogation, it is not typical, it is not standard.

“It’s one of the longest for decades and it represents not just in the minds of many colleagues but huge numbers of people outside, an act of executive fiat.

“Therefore, I quite understand, I’ve already said that Black Rod, I respect and Black Rod is doing her duty and the Queen’s Commissioners are doing their duty and I will play my part.”

Labour MPs also protested the prorogation as they held up signs in Commons with the word “silenced”.

Labour Co-op MP Alex Sobel tweeted: “The action taken by myself and other members to beseech Mr Speaker to not accede to Black Rod’s request echoes the action of members to try and prevent the speaker proroguing at the request of Charles I.

“Unfortunately we couldn’t pass any motions against Boris Johnson’s policies.”

Mayhem in Commons sparked a scuffle between MPs next to Mr Bercow’s chair as he shouted down a Tory MP.

Labour's Lloyd Russell-Moyle, 35, attempted to block Mr Bercow moving as he symbolically threw himself on to the Speaker.

One Tory MP objected to Mr Bercow leaving, the Speaker said: “I couldn't give a flying flamingo what your view is.”
