FURTHER lurid comments emerged from Liberal Democrat ministers’ secretly-taped conversations yesterday.
Ministers criticised Prime Minister David Cameron and chancellor George Osborne's privileged backgrounds and described them as untrustworthy, new exerpts from conversations with undercover Telegraph reporters revealed.
Deputy leader of the House David Heath, said Osborne had “a capacity to get up one’s nose” and had “no experience of how ordinary people live,” while local government minister Andrew Stunell said he did not know where the Prime Minister stood on the “sincerity monitor”.
“I don’t want you to trust David Cameron,” care minister Paul Burstow said. The revelations were the third day of embarrassment for the government after comments from Vince Cable threatening to bring down the coalition were published.
