There were shocking scenes this lunchtime as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom zone of Europe, Gordon Brown, flatly refused to answer any questions at Westminster.
Sitting down on the front bench he sat with his arms folded and whispered to Chancellor Dahling, "I ain't doing it". As a well-groomed David Cameron began the first of his six questions, Brown refused to engage in debate of any form. He simply slouched with arms folded, staring at the floor with a sulky pout.
Speaker of the House, John Bercow, struggled to maintain order as the house was in uproar. Tory backbenchers threw paper airplanes at Labour, whilst Labour flicked rubber bands at Team Cameron.
A Bristol artist commented, "We are governed by monkeys."
