    I’ve seen a lot of PMQs, and it’s perfectly obvious to me that our country doesn’t need any of it. It’s not very substantive or educational. A lot of the questions are just asked to score cheap points on matters of less than great significance. Worse, very frequently, when a significant question is asked but a direct answer would be damaging to the prime minister, the prime minister will dodge the question and change the subject.
