First Prime Ministers Question Time with Jeremy

IMG_0919.JPGSo in the first PMQs with Jeremy Corbyn as leader he stayed true to his word and picked 6 questions, from most frequently asked topics, from the 40000 he was sent. Not once did David Cameron acknowledge the people who took the time to send in questions to PMQ or name the 6 individuals who were mentioned. 

Camaeron tried his best to stay calm whilst responding to Jeremy Corbyn but was as slippery and sarcastic as usual and strained the credibility of his "answers" in the attempt to spin the issue back round to economic credibility, pushing the old "Labour spending" myth. 
Cameron slipped up a few times when answering other questions, particularly to the SNP questions and regressed back to grandstanding theatrics, it is clearly difficult for him to take the session seriously and not just an opportunity to place sound bites in the media. There were the expected placed questions from the Tories bringing up Nato and Trident allowing Cameron to continue to push the "threat to National Security" line. This will be continuously repeated beyond the ridicule and will work its way into the public psyche (I have already had people asking me about it).
Overall, the Tories looked strained and worried, clearly having worked and prepped the PM and others very carefully to try and manage the situation. The opposition stayed calm and forceful and pressed their points. Yes, we look like we have a good opposition now. 
Plus, I will say I never thought I would see a front bench like the one in the picture...a proud day (though still more work to do).
