PMQs: Cameron faces Brooks LOL text jibe

The Labour leader Ed Miliband has joked in the Commons about the prime minister's text correspondence with former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks.

He suggested that after failing to meet with the new French president Francois Hollande last month, Mr Cameron should simply text him the message "LOL".

It comes after Mrs Brooks revealed during her evidence to the Leveson Inquiry last week that the PM had signed off text messages to her in this way, apparently believing it to be an acronym for "lots of love".

However, David Cameron reminded the House that former PM Gordon Brown had his own mobile phone issues, which some newspapers suggested he threw his at staff.
