A slightly absurd PMQs today, dominated by Leveson and Jeremy Hunt. I suspect that history will not look kindly on the fact that there were no questions on what is happening in the Eurozone until 28 minutes into this half hour session.
The Cameron Miliband exchanges were rather laboured, neither man was on particularly good form. Cameron brandished a letter from the independent adviser on the ministerial code Sir Alex Allan. But it later transpired that the letters had been exchanged with undignified rapidity this morning. The perception created by this rather undercuts Allan’s reputation for independence.
Towards the end of the session, the Labour MP Steve Rotheram asked a rather long-winded question which contained various rhymes in it. Cameron responded that Rotheram made the case for Michael Gove’s suggested poetry reading classes. Labour sources are now trying to suggest that Cameron was insulting Rotheram’s accent. I suspect that this dog won’t hunt.Tags: David Cameron, PMQs
