David Cameron today hit back at Vladimir Putin, who said that there would be consequences if there were consequences from the west.
'Let me make this quite plain,' he said in his best stern voice. 'We said that if Russian invaded Crimea there would be consequences. Now they've got it, and there - OK, there haven't been any consequences.
'But now President Putin is saying that if there are consequences, then there will be consequences. That is totally unacceptable. So I have to warn Mt Putin that if there are consequences to our consequences, there will be consequences.
'And anyway, I said it first, so no returns, yah boo.'
