David Cameron brushes off Miliband's attack over LOL texts

There was a bit of light relief during Prime Minister's Questions when Ed Miliband teased David Cameron about the revelation he used to sign off texts to former News International chief Rebekah Brooks with "LOL" meaning "lots of love".

Mr Miliband suggested Mr Cameron could send a message to the new French president, Francois Hollande.

"I'm sure a text message and LOL will go down very well," he said.

Mr Cameron replied: "At least as Prime Minister, I know how to use a mobile phone, rather than throw it at people who work for me."

The Prime Minister was refering to claims that Gordon Brown had on occasion thrown mobile phones in anger.
