actually taking from the people is pmqs, so this is the thing that he is doing, he does his regular pmqs and then at five bm on facebook people can't comment and he will get lots of positive reception there, he does his pmst —— at five o'clock on facebook, people can comment. it feeds into the thing about him avoiding scrutiny by doing this kind of thing, now he's making them newsworthy by talking about these newsworthy by talking about these new policies just through this rather than in the house of commons which is quite an approach. why do you think he will get a warm reception? i have seen the comments coming in and there are a lot of people who seem to be fans of his. they are watching his facebook page so they are watching his facebook page so they have got to be fans of his, really. i'm sure some of them have tried to ask interesting questions and he did take a range of teasers. this is the buy one and get one
