Sterile and infantile …

That was the verdict of today's PMQs from a commentator, heard on the BBC Radio 4 World at One programme. I missed the speaker's name – as always, one is only half-listening.

Whoever it was, we agree. Watching the dismal, puerile display, one is deeply saddened. Neither side of the House comes out well but we were less than impressed by the leader of the opposition, who seems now to typify the decay of the Tory Party.

And, although we have said it before, we will say it again … and again, for as long as it takes. This is not a game. There are real people out there, hurting. If MPs continue to play their sterile and infantile games in the House, there will be a reckoning.

I, for one, will be cheering the tumbrels as they pass.
