Prime Minister David Cameron and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg have held their first joint press conference today.
I thought it was a very impressive press conference. They both seemed very comfortable presenting together and taking turns answering questions from the journalists.
A couple snippets:
Cameron : "the national interest is more important than the party interest."
Clegg: "until today we were rivals and now we're colleagues."
The best moment (and very funny) was when a Five reporter reminded Cameron about his reply to the question "What's your favourite joke?" Cameron had replied: "Nick Clegg". The reporter asked Cameron if he regretted saying that now.
"Did you really say that?" Clegg asked.
"I'm afraid I did say that", Cameron told Clegg.
The Deputy PM then jokingly pretended to walk away, telling Cameron: "I'm off", as the PM shouted: "Come baaaack".
"We're all going to have things thrown back at us," Cameron said. "We're looking at the bigger picture. ... And if it means swallowing some humble pie, and if it means eating some of your words, I cannot think of a more excellent diet."
