Question Period is usually a chance for Parliamentarians to hear their own voices. It’s usually a useless exercise. It’s supposed to allow the opposition and the backbench of the governing party to hold the government to account. This is what most question periods sound like. An MP stands up and makes a long speech, asks a question, the question is ignored. This is what today’s Question Period sounded like, direct question followed by a flabbergasted prime minister unable to answer. Can we have more of this?
