'Acropolis now': David Cameron mocks the UK opposition for hiring Yanis Varoufakis

David Cameron cracked another joke in this Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday — this time at the expense of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party and its new advisor Yanis Varoufakis. 

The Prime Minister was asked by the Labour leader about his plans for tax-free childcare but instead responded by poking fun at Labour for allegedly taking advise from the anti-austerity politician and former Greek finance minister.

Cameron said:

“I can announce to the House his [Corbyn’s] latest economic adviser, one Mr Yanis Varoufakis. He was the Greek finance minister who left his economy in ruins. That is Labour’s policy in two words: Acropolis Now.

Corbyn recently told The Islington Tribune that he was bringing in Varoufakis to advise the party on its economic policy.

Varoufakis is a left-wing economist who represented the Syriza party as finance minister for seven months.
