Clegg v Bone: The Rematch

Just so you all know, Nick Clegg is doing Prime Minister’s Questions today as David Cameron is in the US. He will face Harriet Harman and no doubt a fair few of the Tory right wing Eurosceptics.

I doubt Peter Bone will be as friendly as he was last time Nick did PMQs, in November. And Ms Dorries has restored from the wilderness.

Nick has usually performed very well at PMQs. I expect his weekly phone in and regular town hall meetings make a Commons full of baying MPs much easier to tame. I’m tempted to make a comment about the childcare ratios being a bit off, though. One responsible adult to a couple of  hundred toddlers is a bit much.

So, it all kicks off at 12 noon. This is your your 70 minute warning.

  • One of the most disappointing things about this government has been their failure to transform PMQs from a freak show characterized by catcalls, vulgar witticisms, and political cheap shots into a sober, serious vehicle for providing members of the House of Commons with true and reliable information on what the government are doing. This is something the government could have done without the cooperation of the opposition, and indeed could have made themselves look much better than the opposition by so doing. But they have not done. I’m listening to the DPM, and frankly he sounds just as much of a clown as Ms Harman. He has nothing better to answer than comparisons to the last Labour government. Three years into the coalition, this is no longer acceptable.
