Was the fuel crisis manipulated for political purposes?


Shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander has accused the government of manipulating its response to the fuel crisis for political reasons.

He said that this week the government had been working to a "party interest rather than a national interest".

Liberal Democrat children's minister Sarah Teather said that Mr Alexander's comments were "absurd" and "beneath" him.
