Anybody who caught yesterday's Prime Minister's Question (I watched it on BBC's The Daily Politics) would know that politics is anything but dead. The last PMQ is just like previous ones, where Tony Blair never answered a single question, instead dodging the questions through spin, skirting through the issues laid down.
But whatever, it was a cracker! Yesterday's PMQ was one of the most entertaining of anything shown on TV. Reality TV at its best. Who needs Big Brother?
Name calling, cheap political shots and childish behavior by Michael Howard and Tony Blair were the highlights. Charles Kennedy on the other hand was the most civilised man in the commons and scored a genuine point against Blair on the issue of pensions. I thought Michael Howard asked some pretty good questions, but in the manner he asked, like in so many previous PMQs, how to you expect it to be answered by Tony Blair? The PM on the other hand kept banging on about the economy. It's the economy stupid. Remember Thatcher? We can fix the problem, but you have to vote Labour.
If only politics in Malaysia were this fun.
