Restraining myself during PMQs

I did it! For the first time in a long while, I just sat through an entire prime ministers question time without shouting at the TV. It’s not that I didn’t want to – once again we had to endure the sickening sight of CaMoron refusing to answer for his misdeeds – but last week I got so agitated that Lyn told me off. ”Do you mind?” She said ”I’m eating!” This week, then, I made an effort to restrain myself, and apart from a yelp or two I think I succeeded. Yet it nevertheless demonstrates how frustrated I am with politics right now: so what, for instance, if Miliband said he wants to ‘weaponise’ the NHS? It is a major issue, and the Tories need to be held to account for the damage their top-down reorganisation has done to it. Labour has every right to use it as a subject with which to attack the current government.

There are ninety-nine days until we hopefully get rid of the Tories, lowering taxes while people starve; 99 days which can’t pass soon enough.
