PM question time is not a debate. The PM answers questions that have been tabled three days before (sometimes 24 hours). The PM does know what questions are going to be asked and so has time to prepare answers for damage limitation.

Although the leader of the opposition is the only one allowed to come back with further questions on one chosen subject, he is not allowed to debate the PMís answers. In other words, the PM can put his question down, ridicule him and throw it back at him but heís not allowed to respond.
In my mind this is a total waste of time. Its set up to always make the PM appear to have the winning hand and the correct answers.

When you have someone standing up and asking what this government is prepared to do about (lets say) child poverty and the PM only has to stand up and give a readily prepared bull**** answer and when that questioner cannot a) correct the PM, b) suggest the PM hasnít fully answered the question and c) debate their side of the argument further; whatís the point?

The whole thing is geared towards the PM looking good and you know what, it works!
