Dennis Skinner demolished the Chancellor in the Commons with one of his classic one-liners. The 84-year-old MP let nobody down with his latest attack on the Tories.
He ended with the classic line:
“It’s 8 budgets for Osborne already, only cats have 9 lives.”
Even the PM chortled. Thanks to Cameron, Skinner is still going strong in parliament. When asked why he hasn’t thrown in the towel, Skinner said:

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
