Ed taunts Dave with "You think that's fair?" jibe

Text size Aa Aa

The new leader of Britain’s Labour party, Ed Miliband, has crossed swords with the Conservative leader David Cameron for the first time in parliament.

In the weekly Prime Minister’s Questions session, Miliband tackled Cameron on the subject of child benefit cuts, a policy that has caused Cameron some grief, even from within his own party since its surprise announcement.

Cameron appeared momentarily wrong-footed when Miliband asked him if he thought the withdrawal of benefit was fair on married couples with one high-earner, when benefit was maintained for unmarried couples whose combined earnings were much higher.
