Michael Martin's 'Phoney' Moment
Michael Martin caused David Cameron some embarrassment today when he forced him to withdraw the term 'phoney' with reference to Gordon Brown.
Well, it is he who should now be embarrassed. At PMQs on 10 October 2007 David Cameron used the term and no one complained, and the Speaker allowed it. Scroll in to 1.31 on the above clip.
Further evidence that Michael Martin is not up to the job.
UPDATE: Louise Bagshawe rightly upbraids me via Twitter that it was she who spotted this and posted it on Twitter. Happy to tip my hat at her!
