Once again Macavity is disappearing from PMQs to let the Harridan screech her badly delivered notes given to her by some Liebour orc on Wednesday. Macavity's excuse is that he will have to join the Queen in welcoming South African Jacob Zuma's arrival in London for talks on Thursday. So that's talks on Thursday and not Wednesday. And no doubt, the flight will land just before PMQs starts. Of course.
Digging a little deeper, I wondered just how many PMQs Macavity has missed during his short reign since 27 June 2007. Using this and this I have calculated the following:
|Prime Minister||Years in office||Total PMQs||# missed||% missed|
So currently at number two in the Macavity stakes with only a few months left.
Can he become the all time disappearing Macavity? The Prime Minister that just seems to have "other important business" to attend to when the political stakes get a bit heated?
