PMQs: West Coast rail franchise debated


Labour leader Ed Miliband has teased Chancellor George Osborne as the West Coast Mainline franchise was discussed in the Commons.

Mr Miliband made two references to Mr Osborne having made a journey from Cheshire to London with a standard class ticket in a first class seat on a Virgin service.

He also claimed the mishandling of the West Coast franchise had cost tax payers up to £100 million.

David Cameron defended the Chancellor, accusing Mr Miliband of making "rubbish jokes".
