PMQs / LOQs : New Jujutsu Approach for Dave

Gordon’s inability to answer questions straight-forwardly and his tendency to try and turn PMQs into LOQs (Leader of the Opposition’s Questions) is irritating everyone in the Commentariat. Weak on his feet the technique is borne out of necessity for Gordon.

Psychologically conflicted as Gordon is on so many levels he just can’t give straight answers or make quick decisions. This means every week he is reduced to the same yadda yadda formulas, attacking the Lamont era unemployment, interest rate and inflation peaks of fifteen years ago. When he isn’t doing that he questions Cameron’s policies. So why doesn’t Dave use verbal jujutsu, using the questions from Gordon against Gordon, rather than directly opposing him?

Instead of complaining week after week that Gordon won’t answer the question why not take the opportunity to say; “alright then, here is what we will do better when we are in government…” Surely it is worth a try, since Gordon seems determined not to give any answers.

UPDATE : Just noticed that Gordon even asked Clegg a question. Weak, weak, weak.

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
