I hope that today was not a taste of how things are going to be between now and the election. It was truly dire. Michael Howard wasted six questions - based around the theme of the Brown/Blair spat and Gordon apparently not trusting Tony.

It left me cold but some of the lobby journalists appeared to be lapping it all up. That is the trouble with the parliamentary lobby. It leads to a sort of incestual behaviour where everyone believes that what is happening in Westminster is the real thing. I believe that the majority of the general public are totally bored with such introspection and just want politicians to get on with the job.

Some hope..
