Labour leader Ed Miliband taunted Prime Minister David Cameron today over his hostility to a proposed EU cap on bankers' bonuses.
Mr Miliband accused the PM of defending wealthy bankers while seizing £700 per year in bedroom tax from disabled people.
"I would like to ask the Prime Minister about an individual case that has been raised with me," teased Mr Miliband at question time.
"John works in east London and is worried about what is happening to his living standards. His salary is £1 million and he is worried that under proposed EU regulations his bonus may be capped at just £2m."
Mr Miliband challenged the PM to defend disabled victims of bedroom tax just like he was "fighting for John the banker."
Blyth Valley Labour MP Ronnie Campbell complained that "bankers, spivs and speculators" were stuffing their pockets with bonuses.
The PM accused Mr Miliband and shadow chancellor Ed Balls of "sitting in the casino when the wheel stopped spinning and the whole country nearly went bust" under the last Labour government.
Foreign Minister Alistair Burt's admission that the Cameron government has "supported" a survey of attitudes to US drone strikes in Pakistan's tribal areas amounts to a tacit admission of British involvement.
