Andrew Gimson’s PMQs sketch: Conservative MPs do not look nearly as loyal as one would think to listen to them
The Prime Minister saw off the Leader of the Opposition, but her own backbenchers seemed glum and thoughtful.
The Leader of the Opposition makes his case during today’s emergency debate on yesterday’s events.
He defended the absent Prime Minister with decency and moderation, but neither Labour nor Conservative MPs were persuaded.
Is she chickening out on Brexit? Or playing chicken with Commons and Party over her deal? Or merely a headless chicken herself – bent on daily survival?
Andrew Gimson’s Commons sketch: May provokes derisive laughter and has exhausted the House’s patience
The Prime Minister looked like a straight actor who is appearing in a Christmas pantomime, in order to become the butt of everyone else’s jokes.

Instead of pressing home the attack on the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition helped her regain her composure.
Drained of authority? Yes. Rudderless? Certainly. Humiliated? Absolutely. But May’s very weakness is becoming a strange strength.
She looks increasingly like the captive of pro-Remain cross-party MPs working together against the pro-Leave referendum mandate.
It is hard to see how the different Brexit alternatives can be presented anything like as well on TV as they will be in Parliament.
Ponder the possible consequences of the Government losing the meaningful vote by less than expected. Disaster would be spun as triumph.
