Ask the PM : Gordon’s G20 Statement

Have just been watching Gordon’s G20 Summit statement live. He gave a comprehensive account, Cameron gave a comprehensive rebuttal. So far so good.

After that every single question from the opposition was responded to without an answer being given. Instead the responses were just attacks on Tory / LibDem policies real or imagined. Gordon even mis-quoted Thatcher and claimed it was unpatriotic to question policy with regard to sterling.

An exasperated Michael Spicer asked him one simple straight forward question. Why is the pound falling? He just ignored the question and started on about the Tories.

Via the Downing Street online engagement initiative Guido has asked the PM a question about adding up the true national debt, a few others asked some tough questions via Downing Street’s YouTube channel. This is supposedly all about Gordon engaging with people. Do you think he will answer the questions?

Voting appears to be still open if you want Gordon to answer Guido’s question on the real level of government debt. Also worth voting for the questions from stevex1969, jonhoops1982 and the Taxpayers’ Alliance. Tough questions all – will there be any direct answers or is it all a sham?

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
