Corbyn starts with tax credits again. Cameron rebuffs with the bigger picture #PMQs— Instinctif PP (@Instinctif_PP) November 4, 2015
Corbyn going for tax credits for 2nd week running in #PMQs but this feels like stalemate. Cameron feels more confident on the issue— Pagefield (@PagefieldLondon) November 4, 2015
Not a good look for the Tories, shouting and cheering when Corbyn asks about tax credit cuts. #PMQs— Iain Martin (@iainmartin1) November 4, 2015
But, after receiving largely the same answer as he he received last week, when he asked David Cameron the same question six times, Corbyn changed the terms of the question and asked how tax credit changes would affect veterans.
Some commentators thought this approach was an effective way to reframe the question.
.@jeremycorbyn opts to revisit the crowd-sourcing of questions from the public. Although using example of serving soldier gets cut-through— GraylingUK PA (@GraylingUK_PA) November 4, 2015
Although others were less impressed by this tack.
Counterintuitive from Corbyn to reference veterans . #PMQs— Instinctif PP (@Instinctif_PP) November 4, 2015
Questions then moved on to the state of the NHS and whether there would be another winter crisis this year. But some thought the questions lacked power and portrayed a Labour party in decline.
The fact that the NHS is not an open goal for @UKLabour at PMQs tells you everything about how far the party has fallen...— Craig Ling (@craig_ling) November 4, 2015
There was baying from both sides of the House, forcing the Speaker to intervene and demand that MPs listen to both the question and the answer, adding that "this is what the public expects".
Cameron responded to the question by turning the spotlight on Labour.
PM predicts that the Labour Party is 'heading for a winter crisis' #PMQs— Curtin&Co (@Curtinandco) November 4, 2015
Cameron far more confident answering #PMQs on NHS from Corbyn. Opportunity to hammer lines on economic credentials.— Pagefield (@PagefieldLondon) November 4, 2015
But some commentators found the unwillingness of the Primie Minister to answer questions distasteful.
Rather than answering questions, Cameron is now attacking Corbyn's appointments. #PMQs is fast becoming a joke under this Tory government.— Jewish Voice (@J_VoiceUK) November 4, 2015
Public affairs professionals called the session a no-score draw for both sides.
Tories calling this for Cameron. Labour for Corbyn. But perhaps it's a week when neither emerge which much credit from #PMQs?— GraylingUK PA (@GraylingUK_PA) November 4, 2015
And one described the encounter as forgettable in the eyes of the public.
Sadly today's #PMQs will have faded from the public's thoughts before it has even concluded— Craig Ling (@craig_ling) November 4, 2015
