Ed Miliband’s usually most loyal supporters reacted on Twitter with dismay at the failure of the Labour leader to lay a glove on Cameron at PMQs:
full verdict at 1pm – but that was a bit of a flat performance from Ed today… #pmqs

Odd of Ed M to devote all 6 Qs to immigration given Labour's difficulties w the issue. Menace of Maurice quotes comes back to bite too.

The not so loyal were sarcastic:
…well that went well…

Ed M adopted the Paxman approach to questioning at #PMQs "You're in a mess aren't you?" Utterly hopeless.

Cameron is somehow winning this by reminding voters Labour trebled immigration

Cam knows he has won and risks a joke at EMil expense. Slightly cocky I think #pmqs
