Choking on Cornflakes


Oil prices are falling. Some companies that were spending a lot of money on oil now have spare cash. The Prime Minister suggests that they might use it to give wage rises to their employees. The leader of the opposition replies that people will be "choking on their cornflakes" on the basis that the Prime Minister is trying to "wipe away five years of failure" on living standards by making this request.

What's going on here? It's as if the Conservatives are saying things left of Labour and Labour are saying things right of the Conservatives. Have they crossed in the middle or something?
