PMQs: Too little, too late

I think after 50 seconds even Sir Peter Tapsell forgot the start of his sentence.

Cameron and Osborne were practically cracking up on the front bench while he asked his question.

Apart from such light entertainment PMQs was a bruiser for the PM today.

Brown actually appeared quite confident but the times are simply against him now.

Cameron had a dig about the departure of Blears and Smith, but didn't land the killer punch - as can be his habit.

Nick Clegg said Labour was finished and the real choice now was between the Lib Dems and Tories.

He was laughed into his seat, but that he could say it at all is telling.

Far more interesting was watching the cabinet and other ministers as they sat trying to look nonchalant.

The PM twice declined Cameron's invitation to say Darling would be in position next week.

Ed Balls sat down next to Alan Johnson. The Health Secretary refused to even acknowledge his colleague - he didn't look at him once.

Police Minister Vernon Coaker stood by the door biting his finger-nails and walked out half way through.

Labour's storm is breaking.

I suspect Cameron was gently stirring the mix. Much depends on tomorrow's results but The Jimmy Brown machine hopefully wil survive to lead Labour into the wilderness. Tracto stats were much in evidence today but no mention of the jobless figures, LDV and the horrors still to come. Still his Banker friends seem chipper.

The whole thing s snow balling. I wouldn't be surprised if we have a new leader by Monday. If it's another coronation then there has to be an election, it would be suicide for Labour not to call one.

One of the most evil pictures of Balls I've seen, and that's saying something
