After the UK's credit rating was downgraded by Moodys, veteran Labour backbencher Dennis Skinner told George Osborne that he was a football manager he would have been sacked.
Mr Skinner said: "It's been three years of continuous failure, first a recession, then a double-dip recession, now the relegation of the pound sterling.
"If he'd been a football manager he'd have been out on his neck already.
"Why doesn't he get out!"
