    Can I ask the prime minister if he will join with me in condemning some of the most shameful acts of the student protest which included daubing graffiti on the statue of Winston Churchill and swinging from the flags near the Cenotaph?

      Mr Speaker sir, can I take this opportunity to welcome the Prime Minister to his new role and I hope that he has settled in and got to know all of the staff who work tirelessly behind the scenes at Number 10.

      Can I ask the Prime Minister, going back to the Coalition forming after the election about whether negotiations between the Conservatives and Centre took place?

      Mr Speaker, can I ask the Prime Minister if he is surprised by the media coverage of the student protests, in so much that the focus has not been on the many injured protesters and police, but instead on a damaged car window, does the PM agree with me that the media should not be wasting time on car windows and should instead focus on those who were actually hurt.

      I will very much join with the right honourable member in condemning these shameful acts, as well as the others that occurred during the protests.

      It is of course the eventual aim to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan, but not until the time is right.

      This question is more about private party matters than anything pertaining to the government, and as it is a private party matter, I shall be keeping it private.

      I must wonder where the honourable member is getting the idea that the media is not covering the issue of those injured in the protest. Of course the attack on the royal motorcade has been mentioned, but I feel the emphasis has been overwhelmingly on those protestors and police who were injured.

        Will the Prime Minister be revealing his new cabinet?
        As an extension to this question - What change in ideological party policy (if any) will you be bringing to the house? Specific examples?

        I thank the prime minister for his condemnation of these shameful acts. Will the government intervene, if necessary, to ensure that those who engaged in such shameful behaviour feel the full force of the law with custodial sentences issued where necessary?

        overwhelmingly? is that what you call a side story these days, certainly the coverage I saw on Friday did its best to avoid mentioning injuries and to play up the royal motorcade "attack".

        Does the prime minister believe that the "time is right" when another 100 British Citizens have been killed as a result of the war?

        I will be revealing the new cabinet by the end of this week. As for ideological shifts, I don't see much of that happening. There may be a new leader, but the party and the coalition is still made up of the same members whose views have not changed.

        While I of course wish to see the full force of the law fall upon the heads of these people, I do not feel government intervention is the correct way for this to happen. Allow the police and the courts to deal with it as they see fit.
