I wonder if I'm alone in looking forward to the pointless charade that PMQs has become. When I say "has become", I have to admit I've only been following with interest since the lockdown began, when the PM and opposition leader lack the support of hoardes of choreographed backbenchers jeering at their respective opponents' champion. It may well have been a pointless charade since its inception, but without the baying crowds, we get to experience it more as a gladiatorial contest, in some ways not dissimilar to the battle between bowler and batsman in the test matches that took place this year. There have been occasions when I wished Starmer had asked different questions for Johnson to answer, but not being privvy to parliamentary gossip, I tend to be guided by what I read in the news, which isn't neccessarily going to flag up when the right time to deliver the googlie or unplayable bouncer will be, so aside from the fact that any questions I would like the PM to be asked would detract from the more important battle plan of restoring the credibility of the Labour party with a view to re-election, I don't get to hear what gets spoken about in the corridors of power that is the most embarassing for the government. Nevertheless, I thought it might be fun for us to suggest questions that could be put to the Prime Minister. Supporters of all parties can join in of course, because that's what happens at PMQs. I'll start off with a question from a Tory party sycophant: "Does my Right Honourable friend agree with me that a fairy on a Christmas tree is superior to a star and will add the much-needed magic to the festive occasion that the public need after what has been a difficult year?
