WITH nothing better to do because it was raining heavily, I watched a part of Prime Minister’s Questions from Westminster. I hadn’t realised that it was intended to be a comedy show.

Mrs May at least took it seriously when she avoided answering questions, but Boris Johnson has found his forte

as a comedy act aided and abetted by a group of baying donkeys. Whilst I have no time for Jeremy Corbyn, calling him a “chlorinated chicken” whilst avoiding his question five times is over the top.

If our friends in Europe and other parts of the world see this is how the Mother of Parliaments behaves, any respect they had for our political system is fast disappearing down the drain.

Unfortunately, this insulting sort of behaviour seems to be in the DNA of Tory politicians when we see it creeping into the Scottish Parliamentary debates.

I think cameras should be removed from parliaments because the programmes

have become too embarrassing to watch.

I FIND the headline “Johnson loses by 27 votes as rebels seize control in bid to block No Deal” (September 4) a tad unjust. Those who voted in favour of blocking a No Deal Brexit decided that their country was more important than party politics and voted to uphold Democracy, even although, in the case of the Conservative MPs, it meant putting their jobs on the line.

Although I do not share their political views I admire politicians with principles. I trust that if the PM decides to try to have them deselected then their constituents will rally round and support them.

How many of those Conservative MPs representing Scottish constituencies voted in support of a No Deal even although it could be catastrophic for Scotland.

Perhaps the photograph of Jacob Rees-Mogg lounging on the Government front bench typifies the Brexiteer’s attitude of total contempt for all those who do not share their extreme right-wing politics.
