After Willie Coffey proved his inability to improvise in a debate last month by attempting to read his concluding speech at the start of a debate, it was good to see not everyone gets such stage fright. Jamie Greene accidental­ly started reading the wrong question at Topical Questions, but upon realising his mistake, he attempted to style it out. “Pardon me, I am reading out Daniel Johnson’s question. It was very well asked, although it is worth asking again, given that we did not get an answer the first time. However, I will now ask question 2.” It was almost as if the member was making a point about the shoddy response from the government to the initial question.
