Prime Minister David Cameron has attempted to shrug off the Lib Dems' decision to abstain in a vote over the future of Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
As the PM faced MPs at his weekly Commons question session on 13 June 2012, Mr Cameron said he "understands" the motives of his coalition partners and said it was just "politics".
He also suggested the ministerial watchdog had backed his decision not to launch a probe into Mr Hunt's conduct.
Labour leader Ed Miliband said the PM's judgement was "so badly flawed even his own deputy won't support him".
Labour wants an inquiry into whether Mr Hunt broke the ministerial code in his handling of News Corp's bid for BSkyB, firstly by misleading Parliament and secondly by not taking responsibility for the actions of his special adviser.
But Nick Clegg has told his Lib Dem MPs to "stay away" from the vote, expected later on Wednesday.
Mr Cameron told MPs: "What we are talking about here is the relationships that Conservative politicians and, frankly, Labour politicians have had over the last 20 years with News Corporation, News International and all the rest of it.
"To be fair to the Liberal Democrats, they didn't have that relationship and their abstention tonight is to make that point and I understand that, it's politics."
Mr Miliband responded by describing the PM as "delusional".
