The chamber was positively rammed with MPs at Prime Minister's Questions yesterday all rubbing their hands together vigorously and gearing themselves up for what promised to be a thoroughly enjoyable time watching as David Cameron tore the Prime Minister limb from limb.
What with proposals of political reform being bandied about left, right and centre, we can only assume Right Honourable personages everywhere are quaking in their publicly funded boots.
What actually happened was a bit of a muted affair. Does the Prime Minister agree we shouldn't build on green belt? Is the Prime Minister embarrassed there's still a class divide? Does the Prime Minister agree domestic violence is bad? Boring, boring, boring. MPs looked positively disappointed as they left the chamber.
Still, though - there was the odd interesting moment. We've looked at the words behind the speeches to see what the Commons was really talking about.
What with proposals of political reform being bandied about left, right and centre, we can only assume Right Honourable personages everywhere are quaking in their publicly funded boots. With the local and European elections taking place today, we look forward to the idea that one day such illustrious public bodies such as Esther Rantzen may one day enter parliament. That's the answer to all this.
As in Prime Minister, duh, who is teetering on the brink of the political abyss and must be concerned about his prime position in what is certainly no longer the party of choice in the eyes of the public. Brown's position may be threatened also by his inability to make a decision on, well, anything. Will the Chancellor still be about next week? Is he going to call an election? Does Hazel Blears make her own sartorial choices? Who knows...
Oh, Darling - our time together has been so tragically short. We didn't even get to know you, and we're not really sure whether you've done much to support the nation's small businesses because we've spent the last two years utterly, utterly mesmerised by your lustrous eyebrows. Do you comb them? Is there someone employed specifically for their upkeep? Did you honestly, honestly think businesses would appreciate the VAT cut? Yes? Oh. Off you trot, then. Toodle-oo.
