Brown treated the public as fools. He said that the government had provided 60% more helicopters. But as a Daily Politics viewer pointed out, 60% of ten is six. Does he think we are that stupid? What was just as astonishing was that former Defence Secretary John Hutton didn't know how many helicopters had been provided and had to be told by Andrew Neil.
Perhaps the most noteworthy part of the exchange was when the Speaker interrupted to ask Cameron and Brown to be shorter in their questions and answers. Cameron wasn't having any of it and told the Speaker that the subject deserved proper questions, and then proceeded to ask another lengthy one, which got an equally lengthy answer from Gordon Brown.
Nick Clegg rather misjudged the mood of the House, which had been fairly sombre throughout the previous 15 minutes. He launched into a flailing attack on Brown which didn't really seem to be going anywhere. He would have done far better to have followed Cameron's questioning on Afghanistan, which is a subject where the LibDems have defined a very different position to the two main parties.
If you come back at 1pm you will be bale to take part in an experiment. You will be able to rewatch PMQs and use your keyboard as a focus group dial. This will then show what you thought of the leaders' performances and we can then compare your reaction to the readers of Guido Fawkes, LabourHome, Labourlist and PoliticalBetting.com. So, do come back at 1pm and the technology will go live.
