If you watched prime minister's question time on Wednesday you would have seen Michael Howard and his party (no pun intended) acting like children in a playground.
It was like a pantomime and yet we are asked to take the Tories seriously!
A plea to politicians of all parties - please treat the electorate as intelligent adults. If you don't I for one might be looking for a last-minute holiday bargain.
