Dennis Skinner was made to leave the House of Commons chamber today after branding David Cameron “dodgy”.

The veteran left wing MP, known as the Beast of Bolsover, was asked to withdraw the term – which is considered unparliamentary language – to which Skinner replied:

“This man has done more to divide this nation than anybody else. He’s looked after his own pockets. I still call him ‘Dodgy Dave’.”
