The interview with the Green Party leader was called "excruciating" and a "car crash" after she left long silences and stuttered when questioned by Nick Ferrari.

Ms Bennett was on LBC to launch her party's manifesto, focussing on six strands, including: "Ensuring everyone has a secure, affordable place to live."

She said she would achieve this by building 500,000 new social homes but when questioned on how she could afford this, she struggled for an answer.

Nick Ferrari said he had never heard an interview with a party leader quite as bad as this one. Hear it at the top of the page.
