Harman’s turn in the limelight

Harman's turn in the limelight

Some of the most memorable PMQs of recent times were when John Prescott faced William Hague. The two-men both went at it with vigour and the total contrast in styles made for entertaining viewing. Now, it looks like we’re in for another classic contest because, as Sam Coates reports, Harriet Harman will be standing in for Gordon Brown next week. No official word yet on who will deputise for David Cameron, but if past performance is anything to go by it will be Hague; a Hague-Harman contest would be good for Tory morale if nothing else.
