I was quite impressed with Corbyn at only his second PMQs. He came better prepared than his first outing and he had some good put downs for both Cameron and heckling CON back benchers.
He’s stuck with his raising what people have emailed him about which I sense that Cameron found a little irritating.
But why didn’t he raise what has been the government’s main embarrassment this week – the ministerial split and later u-turn on the Saudi prison contract?After all he can claim some ownership of the issue.
The art of PMQs is to raise the issues that are most likely to cause difficulties to the government and he must seize the opportunity.
Corbyn is still not strong enough with his follow ups. This is where a leader needs a lot of preparation and planning. My guess is that he needs to strengthen his support team who will be totally new to this as well.
