We've had another storming week in British politics, with Labour's anti-semitism row continuing and 5 May's local elections just around the corner. It's time yet again for MPs to fire their questions at David Cameron, so let's take a look at how it played out - without all the shouting:

The PM kicked everything off with a congratulatory message to the new Premier League Champions:

He was then asked to stop bombing Syria, to which he said "no".

Even a heatwave in London couldn't stop Keith Vaz:

But wait, isn't he supposed to be a Villa fan?

It soon all became about Jeremy Corbyn refusing to withdraw statements calling Hamas and Hezbollah his "friends":

Four times, in fact.

Corbyn called on the Conservatives to stop "smearing" his friend Sadiq Khan, which was a mistake because Cameron could turn it back towards the antisemitism issue:

And then it all turned into "We're not racist, you lot are racist" back-and-forth.

Overall it seemed both Corbyn and Cameron forgot about the "Questions" bit of Prime Minister's Questions and just started shouting at each other. Wonder why?

Angus Robertson followed up on last week's question about child refugees, and got the same answer:

However there was a small sign of a potential u-turn:

Luckily the PM didn't try to capitalise on Star Wars Day with a terrible joke like he has been known to do.
