Gordon finally gets below Dave's defences
"That was so below the level of debate," squeaked David Cameron, sounding ridiculously hurt, when the Prime Minister quite reasonably pointed out to him at PMQs today that Conservative Home had opposed the Tory party's opposition 42 days. This was Brown's best performance at PMQs in months. But more interestingly, it was the first time that true petulance of Cameron almost came to the fore. Cameron has been successfully getting under Brown's skin for months. Petty as such successes may seem in the real world, if Brown has found a way of giving as good as he gets, it will do a lot to restore his standing with the political pundit class (and, perhaps, the wider public).
