'Don't Make Me Angry': David Cameron's 'Hulk' Moments (VIDEO)

In the wake of the Tory revolt over plans to reform the House of Lords last night, a "very angry" David Cameron was reported to have confronted one of the leading rebels, finger pointing and prodding" towards him.

Cameron has in the past been nicknamed "Flashman" by Labour MPs, after the fictional public school-boy bully. But perhaps a more easily identifiable comparison would be Bruce Banner, also known as The Hulk.

The run-in with Jesse Norman is the latest in a line of incidents that have displayed an apparent lack of coolness on behalf of the prime minister.

Rebel Roasting

Labour MP Karl Turner wrote on Twitter: "Just witnessed a very angry PM lambasting Tory MP Jesse Norman. Finger pointing and prodding towards Mr Norman."

Turner said Cameron "made bee line for him pointing in his face" and accused Norman of being "not honourable". An accusation which Turner said he thought Norman dealt with "very professionally".

Muttering Idiot

In May, Cameron was riled by Ed Balls and hit back that the coalition had secured: "hard-won credibility which we wouldn't have if we listend to the muttering idiot sat opposite me".

The prime minister was forced to withdraw the word "idiot".

Are You Still A Conservative?

In January 2010 the prime minister found himself sat next to leading eurosceptic Bill Cash the morning after a large backbench rebellion over Europe.

As the Daily Mail reported at the time, Cameron asked the very conservative Cash if he was in fact, 'still a Conservative'. Which needless to say, did not go down too well.

Ed Balls.. Again

Ed Balls really does have a way of getting on the prime minister's nerves. "I wish the shadow chancellor would ocasioanly shut up and listen to the answer," Cameron barked back in March 2011.

He added: "I may be alone in finding him the most annoying in modern politics, but I have the feeling the leader of the opposition may one day agree with me."

Get A Sense Of Humour

The PM's "Flashman" moments of derision are not reserved for the opposition however. In April he told veteran Tory backbencher Douglas Carswell to "get a sense of humour".

At the time Carswell told HuffPost that he did not think the prime minister had needed to react so "glibly and slightly aggressively" to his question about the civil service.
