Labour leader Ed Miliband got in a good crack during his reply to George Osborne's budget speech today (23 March) when he compared the current situation to the last time the Tories were in power in the early 1990s.

"The same hubris and arrogance of the early 1990s, the same broken promises, the same view that unemployment is a price worth paying," he said, before describing the Chancellor as "Norman Lamont with an iPod. And no doubt on his playlist,  Je Ne Regrette Rien."

While it might be an achievement for the iPod to be used in political discourse in the House of Commons, somehow we don't think Apple will be rushing to use it in an advert any time soon.
