It was like an overcrowded creche with a group of rowdy, jeery and disobedient babies.
Prime Ministers Question Time today was mired in controversy as the feisty Tory Leader David Cameron was given a dressing down for taunting the Prime Minister about who should be the next leader of the Labour Party.

Politicians, Scientists , think tanks, quango's and even the Stern report.
Climate change seems to be well and truely on the political agenda as the long awaited Stern report has given politicians of all pursuasions the passion to save the planet.
A stern but harsh warning to the world as a whole! 'Go Green, or face the consequences.'
Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, the Batman and Robin of the political world have taken on another crusade. This time it's not to save the poor and needy of Africa or the brutally needy of Iraq. Alas, it is time to save the world, literally.

Punch n' Judy politics is back with a bang it seems.
Cameron's softly softly approach to Prime Minister's Question Time has fallen by the wayside as the young pretender decided to batter Blair with blow after blow of jests and jibes.
The feisty Tory Leader collared Blair over the shambles in the prison system, and the need for there to be a climate change bill in the Queen's speech.
He suggested that the PM was on 'another planet,' and said, 'maybe we should send the Prime Minister back to jail.'
Cameron also claimed that the system was in 'meltdown.'

IT WAS a bold decision to appoint Steve McClaren as England manager, a man who has little experience of European football and who has never managed a major club.
McClaren, the assistant of former manager Sven Goran Eriksson, cannot be exempt from blame for England's poor World Cup campaign, and thus his appointment is surely misguided. Once again the FA has taken the safe option and illustrates exactly why we have not won an International tournament since our World Cup triumph in 1966.
