Compare that to Angela Rayner who seems to delight in thinking on her feet and is happy to really press Boris Johnson.  That results in Johnson spluttering and spouting nonsense.  He just does not know how to deal with her.

It's a shame that Starmer can't seem to tap into that because he must have done so in the court room in the past.

Whenever Ed Miliband stands in he's more effective than Starmer (although to be fair he has more experience).

Has Johnson tested positive for COVID today?  Or maybe another baby has appeared?

Just wondering how he is going to get out of Prime Ministers Questions today...

Family member tested positive today. Boris confined to No 10.

I reckon every current politician in power anywhere currently is going to be fighting for survival once the apocalypse is over. 

Think what you will about him and the Tories, but at the moment (fingers crossed) it looks like the UK is currently and going to be in a much better position than most countries in Europe, link that into Brexit however you wish.

In what way? Most European countries have had less deaths per head of population than the UK. I appreciate that you may have to take the numbers with a pinch of salt but certainly. The UK's GDP growth is forecast to be better that Europe's now but that appears to be a consequence of the UK suffering a bigger dip and not recovering as quickly.   https://www.brookings.edu/blog/up-front/2021/12/08/a-most-unusual-recovery-how-the-us-rebound-from-covid-differs-from-rest-of-g7/

Yes the UK may be slightly ahead with regard to vaccination but it does not seem to be massively different
