Falling asleep in PMQs

It wasn't that boring - it was predictable but there was the usual rash of light-hearted and silly moments. e.g Michael Howard really shouldn't have asked if an idea was "a goer" because this was the cue for lots of Labour MPs to start waving "bye bye" at him.

My eye was caught by a new Labour female MP who was dozing off..... Dozing off during the budget is understandable (almost acceptable) but to see a newly elected MP dozing during what is supposedly the highlight of the parliamentary week... I am lost for words

Most MPs have scrabbled and battled and worked hard to arrive in this place and I wonder what must have happened to the poor woman for her to have lost her zest so soon.
