Dennis Skinner: “No wonder they call him Dodgy Dave”

Today Dennis Skinner took to the Commons floor to ask David Cameron a question about miners’ pensions. He said to that Cameron hasn’t “got the guts to help miners”, arguing “no wonder they call him Dodgy Dave”.

Skinner was interrupted by Cameron who made this ageist comment, calling the MP for Bolsover “Jurrasic Park.”

This isn’t the first time the PM has directed such a remark at Skinner; in 2012 he had to apologise after calling the Bolsover MP a “dinosaur”.
