A veteran Labour MP has been reprimanded over an "unacceptable" remark likening US drug giant Pfizer to "rapists" over its bid to take over British rival AstraZeneca.
Austin Mitchell sparked outrage after he criticised David Cameron on Twitter writing:
Cameron dare not stop Pfizer because he dare not offend the US in any way.Roll up rapists
His comments came after Labour leader Ed Miliband accused the Prime Minister of putting ideology before British jobs in his approach to the proposed deal.
