  2. Hesitant and flannelling although I only saw the first 15 mins, so he may have got a bit better. Also appears to have an "intermittent" accent. Min DP is Minister for Defence Procurement, Harriet B. Mistress of the platitude and stater of the bleedin obvious.
  3. I think The new Def Sec got a reasonably easy first trip out flanked by his team. Ellwood and Lancaster held their corners well and I did notice blustering Bob get in a lame question. Interested to note Johny Mercer quietly brooding on the back benches with not a lot to say even though RMs and Plymouth were mentioned.

  6. My simplistic answer:

    He claims the current gov't isn't fit for purpose and that Labour are ready to take their place.
    The current bunch leave a lot to be desired but there is no evidence that JCs colleagues would be any better.

    That's enough for me.

    Daily Politics has Owen on today and he has the smug face that needs a good slap. He is so biased he can't even see his bias. Everyone is wrong except Momentum. BBC giving him so much airtime is shocking. And JoCo just let's him talk rubbish and does not give much rebuttal time to the chap from Progress - a Labour faction also.

    The only good thing is the in-fighting among the socialists.

    Jeezus H Keeriste. This is like an hour long party political broadcast for Momentum. If I have missed saying Owen is a twat I apologise.

    Lt Col Thornberry leading the opposition questions, snd stumbling quite a bit. Going back 17 years for a question has backfired a bit.

    The Labour front bench is a bit light today. I understand Corbyn not bring there as that is convention but no Abbottamus or McDonnell to support their colleague!

  12. And Nadine Dorries skewering Siddiq over the Channel 4 interview and her influence in Bangladesh. Don't walk home alone Nadine, same as Alex Thomson from C4 news.
