Douglas Alexander MP, Labour's Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, speaking today on Howard Flight's comments, said:

"These shameful but revealing comments cast serious doubt over David Cameron's judgement in personally appointing Howard Flight to the House of Lords only a few days ago.

"Last week one of the Prime Minister's senior advisers told us we'd never had it so good and now his latest hand picked Peer comes out with these comments.

"Instead of dithering for hours as he did with Lord Young, David Cameron should take swift action and make Howard Flight apologise."
