Prime Minister’s Questions…

Above is a video of yesterday’s PMQs…

We think that this was a success for Ed Miliband and this is why…

Ed’s questions resonated with ordinary people

We had questions on train fares, after peoples’ frustration was clear with the most recent rise. This prompted a long disagreement regarding who did what with Cameron half admitting Miliband was correct by the end. (We particularly liked the way Miliband pronounces “wrongue”)…The More Ed frustrated Cameron, the more ‘Flashman’ (the part of the PM we see when he turns bright red and his neck expands to fill the commons chamber) came out. Ed also mentioned the clear fact that the money was going to increase profits for companies rather than increased rail investments.

We also saw angry Ed yesterday; with Miliband showing how his irritation mirrors that of people up and down the UK.

Luciana Berger showed her fight as well yesterday asking about the adoption on Labour’s ‘cheapest energy tariff for the old’ policy. Cameron’s avoidance of the question again showing his weakness and anger.

It wasn’t just punch and judy though. Ed’s Second set of question showed his support for the union of the UK. On a side note, does anyone else HATE when Cameron uses the word “separatists’? It sounds like something from star wars.

It was clear to see that whilst Cameron was using slogans and words like “neverendums”, Miliband was a lot more statesmanlike, showing calmly setting out the case for the union.

On the whole, from yesterday’s PMQs it is clear to see that Ed is getting better at this and Cameron is getting, well, angrier…
