Ed Milibands first direct confrontation with David Cameron at Prime Minister’s Question Time:
From a purely superficial point of view, I thought Miliband did extremely well – he’s clearly as quick as Cameron (although maybe not as polished), and certainly does not shy away from a fight. I think that Miliband’s major advantage is that he doesn’t really seem like a politician and doesn’t want to get embroiled in semantics. Miliband seems genuine in his beliefs whereas Cameron comes across as a super slick PR man. Whether this gives him an advantage in the long run is anyone’s guess, but he got off to a good start.
