Nick Clegg does PMQs – my tweets

As always, Paul Walter will be along later with his imitable account of PMQs, but I thought that seeing as our own Nick Clegg was standing in for David Cameron today, we could have a bit of a bonus.

I tweeted my way through a session that could have been a tough one for our leader – but he managed to deal with the predictable Labour attacks on unemployment and the Health and Social Care Bill thoughtfully and without aggression or rancour.

Here is a link to my tweets – with apologies for the spelling mistakes. My fingers had trouble keeping up with the action.

  • Given the sort of brickbats the guy has had to endure lately, I want to say that Nick’s performance at PMQs yesterday was something close to brilliant. He showed a command of his brief that to my mind bettered the standard Cameron performance by some distance, including some meaningful defence of the Health Bill – an area where Cameron has tended to rely on invective.

    His instant crushing of the snide intervention by Peter Lilley was a thing to behold.

    Yes, Nick no doubt doesn’t always get everything 100% right but I find it difficult to think of anyone else on our benches who could match him as Leader.
