Flawed prime minister’s questions no excuse for absence

LAW student Tommaso Johannes Forni shared an astute observation of former British prime minister Boris Johnson, whom he said rarely answered questions during prime minister’s questions (PMQs). He wrote:

“In the vast majority of cases, when faced with a tricky, critical question launched by opposition MPs who rightly want to challenge the government and scrutinise its policies, Johnson simply dodges the question and goes on to talk about what he thinks the government is doing well.”
