As I have said a few times on my blog, I love the traditions of Prime Ministers Question Time. To me, it's pure theatre. Today however I changed my view.
Never before have i witnessed a case of Politics completely loosing the plot!
I refer to the using of the most tragic and brutal case of "Baby P" as political tennis! To see the details of this 18month old babies death served over the dispatch box and volleyed right back sickened me!
The following is a brief summary of today's events:
David Cameron and Gordon Brown have clashed angrily over the inquiry into a baby who died after months of abuse.
The Commons Speaker was forced to step in to tell MPs to "stop shouting across the chamber" and remember the issue was "a little child who has gone".
The row was prompted by the PM accusing the Tory leader of "making a party political issue" of it. Mr Cameron called that "frankly cheap".
Mr Cameron had said an internal probe into Baby P's death was not acceptable.
He had urged the government to intervene at the start of exchanges which BBC political editor Nick Robinson later described as "quite extraordinary".
Mr Cameron said it was "completely unacceptable" that the review into the 17-month-boy's death be undertaken by the council's own children's services director.
He said "nobody is taking responsibility, nobody has resigned" and added of the woman in charge of the review: "She cannot possibly investigate the failure of her own department."
Mr Brown said the case "raises serious questions that we have to address".
The prime minister responded that people had been "horrified and angered" by the story of Baby P's death, but said the government would decide what action to take having just received the full report from Haringey on Wednesday morning.
But the exchange became more heated after the prime minister told Mr Cameron: "I do regret making a party political issue of this."
Mr Cameron said that was a "frankly cheap" response to "perfectly reasonable questions" and demanded he withdraw the comment.
He also said it was "shameful" that Labour MPs were trying to shout him down and urged Mr Brown to consider taking over Haringey social services "and put someone in charge who can run it properly".
Now to me this is just going to far! Cameron & Brown should be brought to book over this disgusting affair! I demand action now! There are boundaries, lines that should not be crossed, this is one of those instances. I personally would have them both publicly flogged!
Over to you, what do you think?
