I've had to force myself to write something about this week's PMQ's. It was, all in all, a total repeat of last week's pathetic performance. David Cameron can't be blamed; he's doing his job i.e. asking questions that the public want answers to. Unfortunately Gordon Brown now sees it as perfectly acceptable not to answer them. The speaker seems not to care and even allows Brown to question Cameron - it's a sodding farce. We've got Labour back-benchers asking questions like "I think the Prime Minister is more super than Super-Duper Tuesday, will the Prime Minister agree with me?"
I don't know if Cameron is pleased or frustrated (possibly both) by Brown's dodging, but I would certainly be asking myself "why should I bother to prepare questions" - David may as well spend the time at the dispatch box chatting about the weather. No doubt Brown would point out that the weather has improved dramatically since 1997, and any recent global warming was caused by Tory boom and bust policies in the last century.
What really hacks me off are the outright lies. Brown repeated his claim about the UK having more police than ever before, knowing it to be a lie. The man and his team know no shame. Of course, Brown can spout any rubbish he likes because it's difficult for Cameron to ask follow-up questions or to call him a liar. You will notice that Brown spews out most of his tired propaganda on Cameron and Clegg’s last questions. The reason of course, is that they have to sit there and listen to it without being able to question it.
Gordon, next week can you please answer just one bloody question? I'll settle for one.
