Labour’s urgent question on Tory ministers’ grossly misleading Universal Credit claims set the scene for fiery Commons exchanges — with Speaker Bercow reprimanding shadow minister Chris Bryant (1:57 above) for effectively calling the DWP team liars:

“There has been so much beating about the bush that it is beginning to feel that this house has been misled by a government relying on a deliberate act of deception.”

Heaven forbid that a minister would seek to mislead MPs.

  1. Cameron tells so many lies at PMQ’s it has no become an accepted part of life at Westminster. There should be an official office of nose measurer for Cameron, Osborne and IDS, because the distance between the front benches must be decreasing every week this lot cling to power.
