    What a slimy, shifty and dishonest-looking piece of work. And the armed robber ain’t much better! Eeek.

    And Ed Milliband was in favour of scrapping the 10p tax rate a few years ago. I suppose we’re all hypocrites now, especially if we can be shown to be so with historic quotes.

    Does anyone have the clip from that series, where Gove argues that children are a lifestyle choice and that child benefit should be abolished?
