olololol Guardian comments section: "Next week instead of Prime Minister's Question Time, may we have Prime Minister's Answer Time?"

So to be honest I consider tuition fees one of those Difficult Issues where I'm not entirely sure Labour stands on solid ground but benefit greatly from their opposition status because regardless of what might've happened, had they been in government, they now can side with the poor kids protesting on the streets. Whether those kids see Labour as a good alternative to the coalition is another question altogether, of course, but suffice to say Labour seems cosy.

I was kind of surprised Ed had so much ammunition on the topic but pleasantly so. He was all quick on his fee with the Bullingdon Club comeback.

Which, based on Twitter #pmqs responses, made people say Miliband was igniting "class war" or some much shit. Maybe it's my outsider's perspective on this but I read the joke completely differently. To me, it was less about the fact Bullingdon club is a wealthy young mens exclusive club but more about the club's reputation in terms of bad behaviour, trashing restaurants and the like.

probably longer than it should be. )
