Those amused/angered by David Cameron's comment that shadow chancellor Ed Balls is an "idiot" should scan through their satellite TV box and try and track down the goings on of Question Time Australian style.
At today's edition Julia Gillard, Australian PM, described the opposition as "pathetic" before opposition leader, Tony Abbott, moved a motion to censure the PM. Gillard responded with a cutting ''Move your motion and I'll go and get something important done for the nation."
When a motion was passed Gillard walked out of the chamber. Great fun but perhaps all a little childish and it makes our House of Commons look reasonably refined.
