PM claims Miliband 'barely gets out of Islington'

David Cameron has defended his trip to Sri Lanka and accused Ed Miliband of lacking foreign affairs knowledge by saying the Labour leader "barely gets out of Islington."

David Cameron delivers a statement to the House of Commons.

The Prime Minister was delivering a statement to the House of Commons when he said: "In 2009, sometime after the war [in Sri Lanka] had happened, the last government agreed the conference should take place in 2013 in Sri Lanka.

"If he [Miliband] knows anything about foreign affairs, and I doubt it because he barely gets out of Islington, he'd know this is a consensus organisation - once something has been agreed it is very difficult to unblock it."
