Conservative MP Richard Bacon: Cameron went too far

Tony Wright MP: Can I say one more thing, you played the clips from PMQs just now and I thought, it was a very excitable session so … but I think the bit where David Cameron shouldn’t have gone which is where he said there were questions of integrity about the PM – and I know that we play these games about accusing people of lacking integrity, but I think actually that is going too far because there’s no evidence at all that Gordon Brown knew anything about this.
Martha Kearney:   Richard Bacon, do you think that David Cameron did go too far?
Richard Bacon:   Well, perhaps in the heat of the moment he did. As Tony said these things do get very excited.
