No doubt some people will instantly assume that I too am going to raise the spectre of "party politics" in the same way as Gordan Brown did today over PMQs, and they'd be right. But for once, I am not turning my fire on David Cameron. Instead I think Gordon Brown highlighted in one fell swoop why he is hopelessly out of his depth in the job as Prime Minister.
Whilst on "home ground", discussing interest rates, the economy and the credit crunch, Gordon Brown appears to revel in the mess he shared in making. However, on any other subject, any other discussion, he shows his inability to think on his feet and a lack of tact, gravitas and, dare I say it, class. For all Tony Blair's faults, none of the accusations could be aimed his way.
Today David Cameron asked some serious and purposeful questions about the handling of the latest sorry case of child murder in Haringey (and am I the only one concerned that these child murderers seem to be able to remain anonymous ?).
Gordon Brown, could not answer a simple question on the subject and instead levelled accusations of making it a "party political issue" at Mr Cameron. Actually, I didn't see it that way, and the only person who chose to make it a party political issue was Gordon Brown.
If politicians are not allowed to ask serious meaningful questions of the Prime Minister in PMQs, what is the point of PMQs at all, then again, we might ask what is the point of Gordon Brown.
