Commons assault rattles Gordon Brown (David Hughes, 10/10/2007, Daily Telegraph)

Mr Cameron's raw aggression clearly took the Prime Minister by surprise.

The Tory Leader went for the jugular in his very first intervention, focusing on Mr Brown's "credibility gap" and insisting that the electorate can no longer believe a word he says.

With withering scorn, Mr Cameron recalled Mr Brown's claim on Monday that he would have called off an autumn election even if he had been ahead in the polls.

He was the first Prime Minister in history, said the Tory leader, "to flunk an election because he thought he would win it".

Did he realise, Mr Cameron demanded, "what a phoney he looks".

The Tory benches loved it. Mr Brown glowered.
