Prime Minister Questions were not very inspiring today – tired old Prime Minister. Where’s his sparkle gone? Mind you Cameron lost the plot. He went on the mess in the Home Office – but failed to hit home trying too hard to turn it around to the Conservative policy (one of the rarest commodities in politics) which is to have a Minster of Homeland Security. So he tried to turn a complete balls up by John Reid and the Home Office into a reason for a terrorism minister. Didn’t fly at all.
Ming went on Iraq and pushed Blair to see whether – given that Bush is going to announce 22,000 more troops tonight – Blair is going to send any more British troops. He didn’t answer as usual. So good question – but no answer!
