Looks like there may be some Opposition at last
Jeremy Corbyn won PMQs again, just like he did last week and the week before. That’s a pretty strong winning streak. If he keeps this up, he’ll be considered the default winner of PMQs and it’ll be a shock when David Cameron comes out on top.The key seems to be his intelligence and Cameron’s relative weakness in debate. Corbyn started, really quite satisfyingly it has to be said, by again asking the same question he tried six times last week: could Cameron guarantee no-one facing tax credit cuts would be worse off? The prime minister was prepared this time. He cited income tax benchmarks and the so-called living wage, but his real response was effectively a game of chicken. He accepted the Lords vote, said he and Osborne were reformulating their plans for three weeks’ time and told Corbyn he could ask the question another five times if he liked, but he’d get the same answer.
