“If you want to avoid making Labour’s case on Europe yet again, the Government remains in serious trouble over the NHS, with growing NHS deficits and waiting lists, A&Es facing closure, and vital treatments being rationed. Or you could ask about the Government’s apparent plans to expand grammar schools.”
Two months off and a complete transformation from the Leader of the Opposition. The Government’s in a mess. There’s no clear plan for Brexit. He knows it. The Prime Minister knows it and in he went.The Independent continues
“This Government has had all summer to come up with a plan, to come up with a strategy, and so far we‘ve just had waffle,” he boomed.
“Does she want the UK to remain fully within the single market? Yes or no.”
Theresa May had no answer. “The right deal...a new relationship...seizing opportunities...we are respecting the views of the British people.”
It wasn’t good enough and the Leader of the Opposition knew it. “I asked the Prime Minister a very simple question, and there’s a very simple answer, so let me ask it again. Does she want the United Kingdom to fully remain a part of the European single market. Yes or no?”
"It was a towering performance. So much so that you almost didn’t notice that the Leader of the Opposition had de-aged by about two decades, developed a broad Scottish accent and was standing in entirely the wrong place".Of course being a unionist "Paper" the writer can't really completely praise the "Leader of the Opposition",
Oh, and it turns out that the Leader of the Opposition might not be all he's cracked up to be. He is determined to break up the United Kingdom, forcing immense economic damage on his own people for the sake of petty nationalism. Still, it's 2016 so he'll go far, will Angus Robertson.Mind you maybe the true story of yesterday PMQ should be that the Prime Minister should sack her researchers.
As Munguin Republic reports
Instead of doing her job at prime minister's questions... y'know, answering questions put to her on behalf of the public by their representatives...she fancied herself as a stand up act.
Let's embarrass poor old Corbyn instead of answering difficult questions about Brexit, she thought to herself.
Only she made a bit of a mess of it.
Because when she was checking out Mr Corbyn's Twitter feed to see if she could get herself some forewarning of what he was going to ask her... she found an amusing tweet from a certain Mr Lewis Collins.
Mr Collins, suggesting a question for Jeremy to ask Mrs May, wrote: Does she know that in a recent poll asking who would make a better prime minister, "don't know" scored higher than Jeremy Corbyn.
Ho Ho Ho. Ha ha ha. Point to Mrs May. Right?
Except as has been pointed out Mr Collins is a pretty unpleasant person
Maybe whoever dug up the Tweet used by the said Mr Collins could have been alerted by his choice of Identification picture.
Of course the real name of PMQ should be the Prime Minister doesn't answer Questions but makes cheap jibes at the questioner . but PMDAQBMCJQ doesn't spill of the lips does it.
