The shadow home secretary, speaking a number of years ago, said the country treated its poor better than that seen in European nations.

She said Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuela from 1999 to 2013, was successfully reducing poverty and the poor “really identified” with him.

In a clip on YouTube, she said: “It does seem like the poor really identify with Chavez and he has got one of the most successful poverty reduction programmes in Latin America.

“I think the importance of Venezuela is it shows another way is possible. Obviously it’s got oil wealth which makes a difference, but nonetheless they’ve sought to invest in the country and they’ve sought to continue to fight poverty.

“Whereas in Europe, sadly implemented policies make it much harder for poor people.”

Meanwhile, police officers were knocked from their motorcycles after a huge explosion ripped through their convoy as riots continue to spread throughout Venezuela.

The video shared on Twitter shows dozens of officers travelling along a major road near Plaza Altamira in the Venezuelan capital, Caracas, before the blast erupts at the head of the convoy.

Applause, believed to be from nearby protesters, can be heard amid the sound of gunfire.

Witness Carmen Andrea Rengifo said: “I stepped back when I heard the explosion as I thought it was a megabomb they were firing to the press.”

The US government has ordered family members of employees at its embassy in Venezuela to evacuate the nation.

More than 120 people have died in political unrest in Venezuela since April, according to the nation’s attorney General’s Office.

At least ten people were killed over the weekend including one child.

Hundreds of Venezuelans have been protesting president Nicolas Maduro’s new Constituent Assembly which would have the power to rewrite the constitution.

The democracy-threatening Constituent Assembly was voted in on Sunday but it has been denounced as a “sham”.
