Rebranding Tories as Workers' Party: Halfon and Lavery

Conservative MP Robert Halfon wanted to see the Conservatives re-branded as the "Workers' Party" with a ladder in its logo to show it was helping people into work.

But Labour MP Ian Lavery said the move was an "absolute joke" and he called for the end of "Food Bank Britain" and zero-hours contracts.

On the Daily Politics, the pair spoke to Jo Coburn, and journalist Iain Dale. They were also asked about the UKIP threat to Britain's two largest political parties.
