Prime Minister’s Question Time in the House of Commons is usually a rowdy affair, as members of Parliament (MPs) get to fire away at David Cameron every Wednesday.
This week’s session got especially boisterous when Cameron started making as many puns as he could about William Shakespeare after the MP for the playwright’s birthplace Stratford-upon-Avon, Nadhim Zahawi, called for the world to come and visit the town in honor of the 400th anniversary of the legendary writer’s death in 2016.
After thanking Zahawi for his “soliloquy,” the Conservative PM began name-dropping various Shakespeare plays to poke fun at the drama over the recently-elected Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s controversial reshuffle of the Shadow Cabinet (the pols from the opposition party who are supposed to “shadow” Cameron’s Cabinet).
