It was far better sport when Blair was PM. In fact it was the best blood sport available anywhere. Currently the right and honorable PM Brown is far less interesting to watch.

You mean Question Period? Edit - Never mind, I see that's the UK name for it.

How about Cameron and Miliband now?

It's embarrassingly one sided, Miliband's not up to it, he's on weak ground policy wise and lacks the personality to come across convincingly in that situation. Cameron gets criticised for coming across as a bully, but I think he's holding back. He should tell Miliband to do his homework, develop some sort of detailed alternative to Government policy and do the job of an effective opposition leader and until then stop wasting the House's time.

It's still amusing with all the 'aha!'s and pantomime booing and cheering though.

Millibands facial expressions remind me of when I'd argue stupid points with my dumb, gay housemate. Blair vs Cameron was good to watch because they are both decent debaters. Now its a bit like bear baiting when you've chained him up, pulled his teeth out and cut his paws off.

Cameron does hold his own very well.

Nick Hewer sum upped Miliband pretty well, "Tall, arrogant, weak handshake. That's it."

Funny, that's how I'd sum up Cameron too. Not that I've ever shaken Kermit's hand to know.

biggrin.gif, when you think about it, it does apply to Cameron pretty well too.
