Miliband Shines On PMQs Debut

Like many people, I was nervous about the prospect of Ed Miliband facing David Cameron across the despatch box for Prime Minister's Questions.

However, it was a very confident start.  I loved the way Miliband put the Cameron in his place, telling him that he was the one who asked the questions and it was the Prime Minister who was meant to answer them.

Of course, when questioned about Child Benefit, the PM came out with the same tired old line, that the government was now having to clear up the deficit left by the last Labour government.

But the PM knows that this was a very competent start by the new Labour Leader, and the hardest PMQs he has had to contend with for a very long time.

Ed Miliband can only improve on this performance.

It won't be long before he has Cameron completely on the run.
