Prime Minister’s Questions to be renamed ‘Jeopardy’


Prime Minister’s Questions is to be named after the game show Jeopardy, with MPs receiving cash prizes for guessing which question David Cameron is actually answering.

Mr Cameron, with his trademark bright red face and large forehead, will host the show on Wednesdays at 12pm.

The unique answer-and-question format will remain largely unchanged from Prime Minister’s Questions, with Mr Cameron continuing to present MPs with clues in the form of answers.

The MPs will then look through their notes to see if he’s answering their question or whether he’s simply saying some words in the hope that no-one notices he hasn’t got the slightest clue what the fuck he’s on about.

PMQs to be renamed ‘Jeopardy’

Early contestants included the leader of opposition Ed Miliband who asked about economic planning only to hear an answer to the question, “What would the Prime Minister like to say about the previous Government?”

“I guess incorrectly,” said a distraught Miliband afterwards, “I was sure he was answering the question ‘Why isn’t anything my fault?’.”

The was only winner in the inaugural Jeopardy PMQs, with a Labor backbencher listening to Cameron’s answer about a review of the coalition before successfully shouting, “Why am I so bloody great!”
