Michael Dugher MP, Labour's Shadow Minister without Portfolio , responding to David Cameron and Nick Clegg's press conference this morning, said:

"The sight of David Cameron and Nick Clegg congratulating themselves on their ‘success’ at a time when they’ve delivered a double dip recession made in Downing Street shows how out of touch they are. What planet are they living on?

"David Cameron’s Government is lurching from crisis to shambolic u-turn and back again. In just two years they’ve given us a double dip recession; 4,000 nurses and 15,000 police cut; one million young people unemployed; and a tax cut for millionaires while millions pay more.

"Cameron and Clegg's time would be better spent addressing the needs of the country, rather than patting each other on the back at press conferences. It's the policies that need fixing - not their PR."
