Pointless Prime Minister’s Questions

Enough is enough. Rant at The Independent after another pathetically juvenile PMQs:

Sirs,

How depressing it has become to watch Prime Minister’s Questions these days.

Planted questions from government backbenchers; pointless posturing from the opposition MPs; pre-written insults from Ed Miliband responded to by unconnected but equally pre-written jibes from the Prime Minister.

The overall impression given after each half-hour session is that we just endured a battle of wits between unarmed opponents. It’s embarrassing, and goes some way towards explaining the ease and freedom with which foreign leaders feel able to tell us to butt out.
