WATCH: Munira Wilson’s short, sharp debut at Prime Minister’s Questions

In case you missed  it, Twickenham’s Lib Dem MP made her debut at Prime Minister’s Questions this week. She was first up and her question was simple and effective:

And she was noticed:

It was lovely to see how excited she was beforehand, too.

  • She did well,……. and got the usual expected level of frank and full honesty from the de Pfeffel person.

  • Johnson’s reply was only one word short of an honest answer..That word was ‘else’ inserted after ‘everybody’

    Trying to nail down Johnson is like wrestling with treacle! He’s clearly caught the ‘Cummings’ disease.

  • Excellent question and well delivered.

    New MP’s tend to be too verbose and the Speaker cuts them short (unless they were biased as Michael Martin used to be towards Lab MP’s). Munira was very concise and to the point with a well chosen question.

    If you want to be “King of the World” can you be consistent and honest ALL THE TIME?
    Spare a thought for Lukashenko. He probably knows that Saddam Hussein got 100% of the vote on a turnout of 100%. Beat that!
    The Americans paid for information on his whereabouts (down a hole) and arranged for his trial in his own country once they had checked the local penalties for murder and more serious offences.
    He might also be thinking about Papa Doc and Baby Doc (of Haiti). Would it be acceptable to have one’s own transport like the Flying Dutchman (with megabucks?).
    Is he really thinking about the wellbeing and future careers of the local successors of the KGB?
    In appealing for sympathy is he exhibiting a wish for a deal? If so, is this a sign of weakness? or could it merely be that he lacks enough prison places for the Sunday crowds? and has he noticed the local elections in Russia? This is what Gorbachev did to provide local alternatives to overcentralised power.

    Those who aspire to having a Good King should listen to the Czechs.
    Several hundred years ago the barons decided that the king had excessive power as he sat on his chair, so they lifted it up, with him sitting on it and dropped it out of the window, hoping that he would moderate his behaviour, which happened over the following decades.
