I’m not sure that bawling at someone whilst making factual errors really counts as scoring a few points.

She didn’t actually ask him anything of real substance.

Both are eyeing the leadership of their parties and both are keen to offer a contrast with the present incumbent.

Let me just re-write that so you can see how stupid that statement is: 'Prime Minister Rayner attends the G7'

Rayner probably thinks a G7 is the latest offering from Hyundai cars.

She'd probably start a protest to free the 'G7', and start her am I bothered routine when it is explained to her what the G7 is

The trouble with PMQ’s is that it’s an echo chamber - if she’s not screeching, no one covers it, but at the same time, the general public don’t really care.

As PMQs are covered every week, no matter what is or isn’t said, any screeching won’t affect whether the event gets national air time.
 
Just watched a short interview round by a GB News reporter in the lobby of the Labour Conference: it does not bode well for either the party or (God forbid!) the country.

One late middle-aged 'grass roots' committed Socialist was questioned about the Fragrant Angeluh in the wake of her bitter, bile-filled speech yesterday.

He opined that, on balance, she was quite good: as evidence, he offered that ' . . . well, I mean, she did serve in Jeremy's government . . . '.

Don't think that he got the memo.

angela rayner always reminds me of a curious horse-headed woman who used to hang around the Balkerne Gate after dark. And I don't think it was Bellona.

Just hearing about Rayner's outburst "Tory scum!". That's the former "red wall" turned Conservative voters further disenfranchised from Labour.
 
Sir Kneelalot struggled when Marr questioned him about it.
Captain Hindsight was tying himself in knots over nationalising the energy companies, Grangela's comments, trans issues & taxing private school to bail out failing state education. He was trying really hard not to look like a 'hate the rich' old school champagne socialist, knowing that image won't get him elected, and failing.

He was squirming like a squirmy thing and was certainly well out of his comfort zone and clearly wished he was elsewhere. Not a good advert for a potential prime minister.
 
Angela Raynor is a mediocrity who thinks the UK is - or should be - in a 1970s class conflict. She doesn't realise that a rapidly growing number of former Labour voters are aspirational people. Rather than depriving the wealthy of their assets, they want to prosper and earn assets of their own.

We may be seeing the beginnings of a cultural shift in the North similar to the cultural shift in the South during the Thatcher years. Labour didn't get it then, and doesn't get it now. Blair sussed it out, within the 90s context, but he was considerably more able than Starmer and Co.
