John Bercow: The great axis of the Prime Minister and the Leader of the House [Chris Grayling].

David Cameron: Well I don’t know about that. We’re on the same side most of the time.

We’ve had a very successful cabinet meeting this morning to talk about our anti-corruption summit, we’ve got the Nigerians… actually we’ve got the leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain. Nigeria and Afghanistan, possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world.

Justin Welby: But this particular president is actually not corrupt.

Queen: Is that right?

Welby: Oh yes, he’s trying very hard this one.

Bercow: They are coming at their own expense, one assumes?

Cameron: I… Yes… Because it’s an anti-corruption summit, everything has to be open. So there are no sort of closed door sessions, it’s all in front of the press. It could be quite, umm, interesting. But there we go
