Julia Hartley-Brewer had a passionate debate with Vince Cable over Toby Young this morning, with our host asking the Lib Dem leader "have you ever commented on a woman's breasts?"

Cable was also put on the spot over Benjamin Hunt, who has been appointed to the Office of Students - the office from which Young has resigned - despite leading a campaign to remove a poster of Lord Carey from King's College London over his opposition to gay marriage.

In response to Julia's suggestion that Hunt's appointment smacked of hypocrisy, Cable said his censorship campaign "is certainly not something I would regard as acceptable" and "it does raise questions about his fitness."

However the Twickenham MP suggested that the real issue with Young is his "range of prejudices" which "are pretty dreadful."
