It’s easy to grow jaded with a job when you’ve been doing it for too long. Theresa May had grown jaded with Prime Minister’s Questions, but now she’s returned with a renewed vigour for treating us all like arseholes.

ANSWER THE FUCKING QUESTION

When May first became PM, she avoided answering questions with vim and delight. Jeremy Corbyn would ask her something, and she’d say:

Let me be clear –

and then proceed to not answer the question. By June this year, she was clearly exhausted. When asked something, she’d say:

and then proceed to not answer the question. Which was almost identical to before, but she sounded a bit more tired.

Sorry, what was that? I couldn’t hear the question over the sound of your beard!

He also asked if the NHS would be prepared for no-deal Brexit. May responded:

It’s funny you should mention doctors, because I know someone who needs a beard-ectomy!

Corbyn finally asked what was wrong with May that she was like this, at which the PM shouted:

Beard! Beard! He has a beard!

Twenty first century politics

Some commentators felt that May put in a strong performance. These people are paid to think things like that, for some reason.

Welcome back to the new season of British politics.
