What will you be dining on whilst watching the drama unfold on Love Island tonight?
Nothing - because I do not watch Love Island

Can I ask the Prime Minister if he agrees with my opinion that Love Island is a programme that does little if anything to help the relationship and body image issues many young people have today?

Mr Speaker,

Does the Prime Minister agree with me, that the excellent Juan Guaido is the legitimate President of Venezuela, and that socialism has failed in Venezuela in general?

As far as I know I would say yes
It's my firm belief that idolising and on the flip side judging individuals for their body image on major media platforms and social media has an adverse effect on mental health and self esteem, as well as physical health.

JMR2020.
I do not accept Juan Guaido as the President of Venezuela since it is not for me to meddle in the domestic affairs of a foreign country. I do not believe Venezuela to be a failure of socialism - I think what is true though is that for me a necessary ingredient to socialism is democracy, and this is something that is diminishing in Venezuela. When accountability diminishes so does the government's ability to make successful decisions regarding the economy and other matters.

Thank you Mr Speaker,

1. What will the Prime Minister do to counter the recent racial incidents that have surged against East Asians following the uncontrolled spread of the Wuhan coronavirus? I am myself a victim of it with 3 people in 3 days in 3 different cities saying I'm the coronavirus, despite the fact that I haven't even visited Asia in the last year and a half.

2. Does the Prime Minister believe community and political leaders in the Muslim community need to do more to prevent terrorist attacks in the UK?

3. What did the Prime Minister do to commemorate Brexit Day?

And a question for the Speaker: Why are you misgendering me? I'm not a "they".

As my follow up question, I would challenge his assertion and point out the examples of China or the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin; two socialist systems with no democracy that were incredibly successful in terms of their countries becoming superpowers and being economically successful. Does the Prime Minister not think that these two counter-examples refute his statement?

JMR2020. When will we see you being more active in the House and maintaining an activity level befitting the role of Prime Minister?

Mr Speaker, does the Prime Minister believe that this current coalition will sustain given the growing vocal anger elsewhere from senior Liberal Party members regarding having to occupy multiple seats to sustain a coalition not led by them with a party that still has continuing critical activity issues and a lack of productivity from its members.

Is the Prime Minister confident that he maintains the confidence of his party and the coalition as a whole given his lack of activity in the house? On top of my head I can think of 3 Labour MPs more deserving of his position, and if I were any of them I would for sure be frustrated at your lack of activity.

I am deeply sorry to hear about the hate directed to the Leader of the opposition. I emphasise that hate of any sort has no place in our society, and will do all I can to help the police tackle race related hate related incidents, which you mention have spiked in the aftermath of the new strain of Coronavirus.

I believe it is important that reports of radicalisation are taken seriously by police and Muslim community leaders have a responsibility to ensure such matters are reported. I believe that more needs to be done to fund deradicalisation programmes, which at the same time do not create a hostile environment and single out Muslims in particular but rather seek to tackle all types of extremist ideology, since they are all a threat to our tolerant way of living here in Britain.

I did have a walk around Parliament Square on Brexit day to see how the celebrations were going, although I didn't hugely take a large part in them myself I am afraid

I think the Honourable member knows full well that these regimes were often simply state capitalist operating under the name of socilaism. I believe that true socilaism requires democracy, and equal balance of both political and economic power.

I am hoping to carry out a PMQs either every week or every two weeks in order to boost activity and increase the accountability of the government. I will be away from next week for a week or so, and there will be someone to deputy me as PM so that there is no absence of leadership while I am away.
