Kerry's Guide to PMQs

Returning after a few weeks off, because I've been so busy. Just for Bristol Dave, as I know he appreciates it... Excellent draw for Labour this week. A few Qs have been withdrawn, including Jim Devine who had been down as No. 1 (phew!) and Rob Flello, who has to be elsewhere.

Q1 Dr Brian Iddon (Bolton South East): If he will list his official engagements for Wednesday 10 February. Probably last ever appearance at PMQs for the very well-respected Mr Iddon, who's standing down at the next election. To be replaced, one hopes, by the very lovely Maryam Khan (@Maryam4BuryNorth on Twitter).

CAMERON - 6 Qs, or possibly 3 Qs now, 3 Qs later

CLEGG - 2 Qs

Q2 Mr Gordon Marsden (Blackpool South): Local issue I suspect.

Q3 Dr Stephen Ladyman (South Thanet): Former transport minister, marginal seat.

Q4 Mr Douglas Carswell (Harwich): Mr Carswell is asking people on his blog what he should ask at PMQs today.

Q5 Ms Karen Buck (Regent's Park & Kensington North): Karen will resist the temptation to dwell on Tory misfortunes in her own back yard, (no Cash for questions?) but expect a few chuckles.

Q6 Mr Gordon Prentice (Pendle): Can never be quite sure what Gordon will come up with.

Q7 Mr Roger Williams (Brecon & Radnorshire): Welsh hill farmer, comes up often at PMQs and we always predict he'll ask about sheep, but he never does.

Q8 Mr Phil Willis (Harrogate & Knaresborough):

Q9 Gwyn Prosser (Dover):

Q10 Mr Chris Mullin (Sunderland South):

Q11 Mr Andrew Robathan (Blaby): Deputy Tory Chief Whip. Will probably live down to expectations and be a little bit nasty. Quite often gets pulled up by Speaker for heckling during PMQs so has started sitting further away from the Speaker's Chair.

Q12 Annette Brooke (Mid Dorset & North Poole): Nice woman, Lib Dem spokesperson on children's issues and also chair of the APPG on Microfinance.

Why, whenever I see the current South Thanet MP's name, do I think of Thailand?
