Do nothing Dave loses to Gordon at PMQs
Gordon Brown was in cracking form at PMQs today, with a clear win over David Cameron. The 'do nothing' tag is clearly serving Brown well, while Cameron's scattergun approach really didn't work. It doesn't help that both Ken Clarke - whatever he has said since - and Norman Lamont were keen advocates of the VAT cut that Cameron ridicules. And it does little good for Cameron to witter on about Brown stealing the few policies the Tories have enunciated: it's called good politics. So, a clear win for a rejuvenated Prime Minister against a disappointingly flat Leader of the Opposition as Parliament resumes.
