With both Tony Blair and John Prescott away, it would appear that Geoff Hoon is running the country.
Seriously, they can’t BOTH be away can they? When was the last time that neither of them turned up to PMQs? Surely the point of having a deputy is that when the boss is away, the number 2 takes over?
It just goes to show what a complete irrelevance PMQs has become, and the complete disregard the government now considers Parliamentary scrutiny to be.
