Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, took the opportunity of his question to David Cameron to ask him to apologise for the announcement of cuts to disability benefits.
The cuts were announced during last week's Budget and resulted in the Government making a U-turn as well as the resignation of Iain Duncan Smith.
As ever, some commentators thought Corbyn was shooting wide of the mark with his questions.
Really unclear what Corbyn is trying to achieve here...the moment is passed and Cameron can just bat away these questions— Wil Barber (@wilbarber) March 23, 2016
Corbyn starts with welfare, PIP and IDS resignation (for the first time) "If everything is so fine and dandy why did he feel need to resign"— BM Public Affairs (@BMPubAffairs) March 23, 2016
But Cameron was in the mood for mischief and made jokes about a leaked Labour list showing how many MPs are hostile towards the Labour leader, in response to Corbyn's questions.
Cameron is now using the list of hostile Labour MPs as a stick with which to beat Corbyn - Corbyn tells him to stop the "theatre" #PMQs— GraylingUK PA (@GraylingUK_PA) March 23, 2016
Corbyn pushed on regardless and asked how the Government intended to plug the black hole left by the abandoned cuts to disability benefits but, once again, Cameron was ready for him.
JC continues to push on the Budget and asks where the £4.4bn "black-hole" will come from #PMQs— Bellenden (@BellendenLtd) March 23, 2016
Cameron fights back on the Budget and seems in a buoyant mood as he constitutes to make jokes about list of Labour MPs who support JC #PMQs— Bellenden (@BellendenLtd) March 23, 2016
Cam -"If you're 'neutral but not hostile' you have to be quiet I think". May be "theatre" as Corbyn describes, but fair to say Corbyn owned.— BM Public Affairs (@BMPubAffairs) March 23, 2016
But some commentators thought it was Cameron who had misjudged the national mood over the botched announcement on disability cuts.
Perception of Cameron having fun at #PMQs in response to qus about disability benefits may be unhelpful— GraylingUK PA (@GraylingUK_PA) March 23, 2016
The Speaker was forced to intervene several times as the session became more boisterous, telling MPs on both sides to calm down and even rebuking them for gesticulating.
SNP leader Angus Robertson added his voice to the chorus of condolences at the terrorist attacks in Brussels yesterday and asked Cameron to confirm that everything was being done to support Belgium.
But Robertson then switched tack and he called on Cameron to extend the oversight that already exists to regulate the police and security services to special forces troops.
But Cameron flatly refused the suggestion, adding that British troops were already governed under the auspices of international law.
According to Brandwatch, there were more than 9,000 mentions of PMQs during the half-hour session with the most tweets mentioning disability cuts, Brussels and the Budget.
Robertson enjoyed the most positive sentiment rating, at 50/50, with Corbyn enjoying a 27 per cent positive rating and Cameron trailing on 16 per cent.
