Tim Farron: He may only have seven MPs in his Parliamentary party but he asked a serious question – and David Cameron treated it with contempt.

David Cameron cracked a cheap joke at a rival’s expense after being told about the plight of ‘desperate’ refugee children.

Tim Farron spoke passionately of his visit to the Greek island of Lesvos, where refugee families are stranded after crossing the Mediterranean in precarious rubber dinghies.

But the PM focused on the poll fortunes of the Lib Dem leader, whose party was left with eight MPs after voters punished them for going into Coalition with the Tories.

He smirked: “Let me welcome the honourable gentleman to his place – and it’s good to see such a high turnout of his MPs.”

Mr Cameron … continued, saying he’d refuse to take children from Lesvos.
