Prime Minister David Cameron was today blasted for appointing a personal photographer funded by the taxpayer.

In a fiery exchange in the House of Commons Labour leader Ed Miliband mocked the Prime Minister over the appointment of Andrew Parsons – who is reportedly on the civil service payroll – in light of massive budget cutbacks.

?I can?t believe he is talking about hard choices this week because who has he chosen to put on the civil service payroll? His own personal photographer,? Miliband is reported to have said during Prime Minister?s Questions.

He added: ?There?s good news for the Prime Minister ? apparently he does a good line in airbrushing.?

Cameron hit back saying that the Government?s communications budget is now only a third of what it was.
