Success of #downgradedChancellor suggests Parliament has a big TV audience

Standard

Ed Miliband, Labour leader, used his televised reply, on the floor of the House of Commons, to the Chancellor of the Exchequer‘s Budget to announce the “#downgradedChancellor” hastag and within an hour it was trending worldwide. Seems more people watch parliament, at least on Budget day, than many give credit for.

I predict there will be an attempt to repeat this – probably from Prime Minister David Cameron – in next week’s Prime Minister’s Questions.
