Although the Conservative party is currently divided over the EU, some Tory MPs are still managing to remember to attack the opposition party -- rather than their colleagues.

Today the Commons returned firmly to 'Punch and Judy' politics following Cameron's EU statement in the Commons. As Jeremy Corbyn gave his reply, Chris Pincher -- the MP for Tamworth -- couldn't resist having the last laugh. The incident occurred as the Labour leader discussed his recent trip to Brussels:

Jeremy Corbyn: Last week -- like him -- I was in Brussels, meeting with heads of government and leaders of European socialist parties, one of whom said to me...

Chris Pincher: Who are you?

While Corbyn insists this is not what the leader said to him, the heckler certainly managed to cheer up the Conservative MPs after a difficult few days. In fact, even Labour's Andy Burnham seemed amused:

Update: It has come to Mr S's attention that Nigel Farage may still be the champion when it comes to the 'who are you' heckle.
