Wednesday saw David Cameron walk into the Commons for the last time as Prime Minister and he seemed remarkably chipper.
PM starts by congratulating Andy Murray, and says other than a visit to the Queen, he has a remarkably clear diary #PMQs— Faisal Islam (@faisalislam) July 13, 2016
As did the Tories.
Maybe because they’re all fans majestic alternative rock music.
Guests at #PMQs include all of Cameron's closest staff and Lord Feldman plus, bizarrely, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy.— Harry Cole (@MrHarryCole) July 13, 2016
The place was packed.
House of Commons at "MPs debating their own pay" levels of crowded. #PMQs— Primly Stable (@PrimlyStable) July 13, 2016
Some people couldn’t get a look-in.
Meanwhile back at home...
Cameron listed his achievements.
PM: You can achieve a lot of things in politics – that’s what it’s all about. Nothing is really impossible if you put your mind to it. #PMQs— UK Prime Minister (@Number10gov) July 13, 2016
Then Jeremy Corbyn stood up.
But Cameron wasn’t going to be so easy on Labour at his last appearance as PM.
PM "when it comes to women prime ministers pretty soon it's going to be 2-0 and not a pink bus in sight" #PMQs— Sophy Ridge (@SophyRidgeSky) July 13, 2016
Cameron: We've had resignation, nomination, completion, coronation..and they haven't even worked out the rules yet! #PMQs— Red Box (@timesredbox) July 13, 2016
Then Corbyn opened an industrial-sized tin of political gloss.
Jeremy Corbyn on Labour's difficult week: "democracy is an exciting and splendid thing" #PMQs— Sophy Ridge (@SophyRidgeSky) July 13, 2016
Even when he did try and make a joke it was more at his own expense than Cameron’s.

And it just kept coming from Cameron.
Everyone seemed to forget what side they were on.
This is bizarre parliament sight: Tory MPs cheering Corbyn's statements, Labour MPs laughing at Cameron's jokes.— Jim Waterson (@jimwaterson) July 13, 2016
Then things got a bit surreal.
Cameron holds up a picture of a cat in #PMQs, shouts I LOVE THIS CAT and this just seems normal after the last few weeks of British politics— TechnicallyRon (@TechnicallyRon) July 13, 2016
Cameron tells the House that, contrary to rumours, he does love Larry the Cat. What has even happened to British politics? #PMQs— Stephen Daisley (@JournoStephen) July 13, 2016
Aw, David Cameron loves his country and the Downing Street cat. Throw in the pig and that's an excellent game of Shag, Marry, Kill. #PMQs— Jon Holmes (@jonholmes1) July 13, 2016
And then came the final speech.
Dave will still be holding #pmqs by himself in the kitchen every Wednesday. Force of habit. *Sam passes him a mug to dry*— Fiona-Natasha Syms (@fifisyms) July 13, 2016
So in summary...
#PMQs latest:— Patrick Smith (@psmith) July 13, 2016
-- CAMERON 'LOVES' CAT
-- CORBYN 'DOES' JOKE
-- LONG-TERM ECONOMIC MELTDOWN AND GENERATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CRISIS: UNSOLVED
How an earth has Cameron managed to lose a referendum, resign, and go out in a blaze of glory. It's like black magic.. #PMQs— Jack Mendel (@Mendelpol) July 13, 2016
