Op-ed: If you are a supporter of Jeremy Corbyn, like this blogger, you must be pleased to see a shadow cabinet in action at long last.
The team now looks good, sounds good and to quote an old advert "by golly it is good."
Reporting on Wednesday's PMQs is mixed. It depends which publication you read and its angle.
Watching as it happens or on catch up is the only way to assess for your self.
"Theresa May offered her praise to her rival in the House on Wednesday after he overwhelmingly defeated Owen Smith in last month’s Labour election campaign. After offering her congratulations, there was an eruption of cheers and laughter from behind the Prime Minister, with Chancellor Philip Hammond noticeably amused."
That is from the Express. Its boss is a big UKIP donor.
My slant might be "Cruella aka unelected PM Theresa May was cheered on by her braying donkeys disguised as Tory MPs and in particular by Philip Hammond aka Mr Burns look-a-like."
The Express then continues with "She then welcomed Mr Corbyn back to “his place” in the Commons." That report continues "In response he told her: “I am most grateful to the over 300,000 people who voted for me to become the leader of my party. "Which is rather more than voted for her to be the leader of her party.”"
The words do not do the event justice.
Mr Corbyn does not do personal but May does. So his words were unusual but supporters were applauding crying as one "at last".
You have to fight fire with fire and so it goes.
Deputy Labour party leader Tom Watson grinned across at the Tories while another Labour front bencher stressed May had zero votes with a hand gesture and on the bench behind May's humiliation was completed by pointing and laughing Labour MPs.
After being party leader for a year Mr Corbyn should be settled into the role and have already gained vital experience but after being forced to waste a year on in fighting and an unnecessary Labour leadership election he still has a way to go.
But remember Blair, Brown, Cameron, Thatcher et al all had times when their inexperience showed and all took time to gain the upper hand.
With a shadow cabinet fit for purpose and a united Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn can now show us all what he is made of.
If those who are still plotting, anonymously drip feeding bile to the mainstream media, carry on regardless they will not be forgiven a second time.
I now look forward to next week's PMQs.
Take a look at two articles re PMQs yesterday one by John Rentoul and the other by Liam Young but both in the Independent. You may find it difficult to accept they are talking about the same parliamentary session.
Check out footage below for as it happened in real time and decide for yourself.
Op-ed: As the Tory Party conference gets going the number of personal attacks against Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters highlight many things. When parliament resumes after this party conference indulgent recess, taken so soon after their long summer vacation, it will be business as usual - that is Corbyn bashing remains the Tory Party's main method of staying in power.
Mr Corbyn will not reapond in kind. He does not do personal attacks.
Monday George Osborne's replacement Philip Hammond has announced Mrs May's unelected government is set to ditch its 2015 election promise to balance the UK economy any time soon.
As expected Hammond is blaming that still unfulfilled British BRexit from the European Union.
But it is not. It is the "Jeremy Corbyn Effect."
And it is the incompetence of the Tory government running the country since 2010.
At the weekend the Tories announced a change to disability assessments. The Independent reported "Medical tests for chronically ill benefits claimants to be scrapped."
And about time we say.
But there is still a long way to go.
At least the government has recognised that such re-testing especially of people with life-long conditions is a waste of money and time but adds an extra level of stress and sometimes financial hardship onto people with disabilities.
The Conservative Party pledged to "fix the roof while the sun was shining" in its 2015 election manifesto but that is just another broken promise.
In July Hammond announced austerity measures would be scaled back. Translated that means our attack on the poor, vulnerable and middle classes will be less severe.
Since 2010 the Tory Party has waged class war and has put young against old, working people against non-working people and helped created a very divided country.
Social security benefits and public services have been slashed in the name of austerity while the Tories have handed out financial perks to people who do not need them.
So Britain's roof will be left leaking then or will it?
The UK remains a very wealthy country with a dozen or so very wealthy people owning huge areas of the UK. One reason people see migrants as 'swamping' cities and towns is huge areas of the country are not "open for all." Add to this the Tories underfunding of local councils, especially in traditional Labour heartlands, and it is easy to see why services are stretched.
Monday Mr Hammond's cunning plan is "a £5 billion package to fund the construction of up to 225,000 homes." Although Hammond will declare the Government is still committed to bringing down the deficit so don't expect too many positive changes.
Theresa May and her government have no mandate to govern the UK.
David Cameron was elected Prime Minister in 2010 but he fled with his tail between his legs following the BRexit vote.
Theresa May was shuffled into the role of Prime Minister perhaps for the long haul or to fill a gap temporarily.
The Tory Party are all smiles for the camera but a political party with deep divisions especially when it comes to BRexit.
As for the UK's leaky roof it will have to wait.
The Conservative Party conference began Sunday October 2, 2016, in Birmingham and its ticket prices show it is not a party of or for the poor. Sunday people gathered outside to stage an anti austerity protest. Thanks to Alan Mason for images from the protest shown below.
