Cameron's fast thinking pays off at first PMQs
Two quick observations on David Cameron's first performance at Prime Minister's Questions.
First, he seemed very nervous to start, and I could see his hands very visibly shaking from my vantage position directly above.
Second, Cameron has very few notes. Whereas Tony Blair and Gordon Brown had thick ring-binders of notes and possible replies, the new PM has only a thin sheaf of papers, and had nothing at all during his exchanges with Harriet Harman.
He seems to rely a lot more on memory and thinking on his feet, with some success against Harman (though I thought she performed better than normal).
