lack of personality will show as a weakness at PMQ ... however this will not make her a bad leader ...
Think nick clegg takes a chunk of that blame tooFirst massive whopper, straight from the Bozo playbook, stating Labour didn't invest in Nuclear. In 2006 they signed off on a new power station but in 2010 this was cut by Dave and Gideon "as it wouldn't be ready until 2021". So.......it's started.
Expect Hoyle to demand she corrects her slip..... obviously......
See the braying sycophantic mob are back, fresh from their jollies.......
It's a dreadful standard, lacking any real political debate. Put that together with the other punters' favourite, Question Time, and you can see how any serious questioning of policy and strategy is suppressed by the media, and more importantly by the station which we have to subscribe to.Can’t watch PMQs, grown adults shouting and acting like a classroom of children.
I don’t think PM’s will go very well for her, she has little to no agility to be able to deal with any unforeseen questions. She has standard answers about a subject without listening to the question.PMQs is certainly going to look different going forward. Up against Johnson it was all about "brand Boris" - he wasn't an ideologue at all hence frequent personal questions, integrity being questioned etc.
Truss doesn't have a personality, as far as I can tell. She is an ideologue though. I think we'll effectively start to see the two big party ideologies start to play out more across this premiership (seeds of that being sown today with the questioning of source of funding for energy).
In my opinion this actually sets Starmer a bigger challenge than before. Whilst it was fairly easy to ridicule Johnson (his lack of integrity ultimately led to his downfall) it may be a tougher task to suggest, on purely ideological terms that Labours approach is "right" and the Conservatives is "wrong". Any opposition policies at this stage are likely to be stolen/enhanced as well.
That was a Queens speech debate, If it had been pmqs he would have been pulled up for asking Cameron questionsSay what you like, Blair was masterful at PMQ, as he did his homework, 2nd guessed the questions and had role playing dry runs earlier in the week.
He was also a natural at it.
