PMQs: Summary & Videos

The cheering, jeering and barracking edition.

Miliband: Greece, Italy, recapitalisation of banks and an agenda for growth. ‘Which powers and when’ will they be repatriated? He also raised Clegg’s statement that no powers would ever be repatriated while he was in government. He pushed the question of who speaks for the government, Clegg or Cameron.  Cameron called him “a complete mug”.
