David Cameron in Twitter taunt to Labour MP Gloria De Piero
Labour frontbencher canvassed her followers on what to ask at Prime Minister's Questions
Wednesday 11 September 2013
David Cameron has taunted a Labour frontbencher who canvassed her Twitter followers on what to ask at Prime Minister's Questions by pointing out that the first response appeared to be a jibe at her party leader Ed Miliband.
Gloria De Piero's question on City bonuses was brushed aside by Mr Cameron who asked her why she rejected the first suggestion he said was made to her - "how happy are you that the leader of the Labour Party will still be in place come the next election?".
The Prime Minister appeared to be referring to a tweet from Ms De Piero's former GMTV colleague and ex-tennis player Andrew Castle, which said: "Morning. how about tjis. 'How happy are you that Ed Milliband will be the leader of the Labour Party at the next election?'."
Ms De Piero had asked him: "Are you embarrassed that while so many people struggle, City bonuses are up £700 million this year?"
Mr Cameron replied: "City bonuses are actually 86% lower than they were when you were supporting the last government.
"But let me just point out to you, because I follow these things very closely, you tweeted this morning that you had a question to the Prime Minister and you asked for suggestions.
"And the first suggestion came back, because I follow these things very closely, as you know Mr Speaker, the first suggestion that came back was this - 'how happy are you that the leader of the Labour Party will still be in place come the next election?'.
"Why reject that advice and take advice from the shadow chancellor? I can't think."
