Game, set and…

THE bottom line is this: Cameron was utterly useless at PMQs.

He looked completely out of his depth and had nothing new or interesting to say. GB was confident and articulate and was in complete command of the chamber.

I don’t deny that there have been occasions where Cameron has had the better of the weekly exchange. Today was definitely not one of those. And from the looks in the eyes of those back benchers behind Cameron, they realised it too.

    I’ll take your word for it.

    Shame he’s not confident and articulate and in complete command of the economy.

    Cameron was always going to suffer when it came to issues of substance.Away from his flash card soundbites he hasn’t got a clue…

    ‘GB was confident and articulate and was in complete command of the chamber.’

    did his confidence etc extend to explaining to us taxpayers just where all the money is coming from to prop up these guarentees and what effect, if any there will be on future taxation and spending comittments ?

    just thought i would ask!

    Hewas probably as depressed as we are. Brown of couse was full of his self delusion.
    Brown was in a position to regulate the system in the right places. He failed to do so and made sure the BoE did not have the inside information to warn about what he was doing. The biggest con on the British people every. History will judge Blair and Brown as the biggest disaster to Britain ever.

  5. It is worrying when someone as shallow as Cameron makes Gordon Brown look confident and articulate. We voters really will have a problem at the next election.

    I suppose this one was a score draw.

    ps that last comment was what we in the comedy business call ‘irony’.

    I mean I would have thought that was obvious…but you never know

    It’s very hard to score points when you’re trying to look bi-partisan.

    ‘Brown and Blair the biggest disaster to Britain ever…’? What, worse than dear old Maggie?

    ” Cameron was utterly useless at PMQs.”

    Gordon Brown is utterly useless in his economic stewardship of this country as shown by this week’s events.

    Given a choice, which would you rather have?

    Gordon was a publicly backstabbing dick today.

    Cameron was deliberately tame today and all of his questions basically tossed Gordon a slow underarm ball with which to reply with more details of the governments plan – something Gordon thanked him for on numerous occasions today.

    How did Gordon repay him? He used his last answer (that he knew Cameron would not have an opportunity to reply to) to have a pop at Cameron for a comment he made on the Andrew Marr show.

    Good show.

  12. You just don’t get it, do you young Tom? It’s called POLITICS.

    Cameron doesn’t have to help Gordon Brown dig his own holes. This one is so big it’s unlikely he can even hear the handlers at ground zero telling him to stop digging.

    Maybe he thinks he’ll strike gold? Oh no! He sold all that at the bottom of the market, didn’t he?

    Cameron asked a perfectly reasonable questions as to whether the banks applying for taxpayer handouts would be required not to pay bonuses this year.

    Brown turned it into a petty display of political pointscoring. Just what the country needs at a time like this.What a waster.

    I assume that the answer to Cameron’s question was ‘no’. Pity.

    …”a publicly backstabbing dick”…
    Oh Gawd, do us a favour, please.
    Cameron had a verbal slap for a change.
    His baffled expression said it all.
    Stop trying to turn him into some sort of abused victim. It’s utterly pathetic.

    Diablo’s right – it’s politics.

    I suspect Broon thinks he is having his Winston Churchill moment.

    He would be if Churchill had spent 10 years giving hand relief to Hitler and Goering before telling them exactly where, when and how to invade Britain.

    If all Broon and his acolytes can manage as a claimed success is to win a minor spat where he gets the last sentence then, we are further up shit creek and don’t even have a canoe let alone a paddle.

    “Gordon Brown is utterly useless in his economic stewardship of this country as shown by this week’s events.

    Well, I’d rather have GB, and the advice from the best brains in the country and the other world leaders, who’ve rowed in beside him to deal with the current crisis, but I guess you’d prefer Osborne?

    But before you agree, stop, think… Redwood the Tory economics champion, is supporting him too.

    So, allow me to anticipate your get out response …..
    I wouldn’t have started from here…..?

    Take a little walk to the edge of town, go across the tracks
    Where the viaduct looms, like a bird of doom as it shifts and cracks
    Where secrets lie in the border fires, in the humming wires
    Hey man, you know you’re never coming back
    Past the square, past the bridge, past the mills, past the stacks
    On a gathering storm comes a short ugly man
    In a dusty black coat with a red right hand

    He’ll wrap you in his arms, tell you that you’ve been a good boy
    He’ll try to rekindle all your dreams he’s to destroy ed
    He’ll reach deep into the hole, try heal your shrinking soul
    Hey buddy, you know you’re never ever coming back
    He thinks he’s a god, a ghost, a guru
    They’re whispering his name through this disappearing land
    But hidden in his coat is a red right hand

    You ain’t got no money? He’ll get you some
    You ain’t got no car? He’ll get you one
    You ain’t got no self-respect, you feel like an insect
    Well don’t you worry buddy, cause here he comes
    Through the ghettos and the barrio and the bowery and the slum
    A shadow is cast wherever he stands
    Stacks of green paper in his red right hand

    You’ll see him in your nightmares, you’ll see him in your dreams
    He’ll appear out of nowhere but he ain’t what he tries to appear
    You’ll see him on the TV screen and advertising hoardings
    Hey buddy, I’m warning you to turn it off
    He thinks he’s a ghost, a god, a guru
    You’re one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan
    Designed and directed by his red right hand
