There was an end-of-term feeling to David Cameron's final Prime Minister's Questions on Wednesday as the outgoing leader marked the moment with a rivet-gun supply of gags that had both sides of the House of Commons rocking with laughter.
Cameron has always been a dab hand at PMQs, but he took it to another level from the moment he declared that his day's diary was "remarkably light" aside from a meeting with the Queen later in the day.
Cameron's last PMQ's, and he's throwing all the shade.

The banter on PMQ's is too much right now

It was a sign of things to come as he provided a tongue-in-cheek commentary of Labour's own recent leadership chaos, cheekily suggesting that "if they ever do get into power it would take them about a year to decide who sits where", while opposite number Jeremy Corbyn was likened to the Black Knight in Monty Python.
At one point Cameron even declared his love for Number 10´s Larry the Cat - tweeting a pic of the two together afterwards - who he will have to leave behind at the residence after his exit.
Cameron claimed he had clocked up 5,500 questions while Prime Minister - although joked he will leave it to others to decide how many he has answered - while also laughing off the prospect of him taking over the recently-vacated England manager or Top Gear presenter roles.
MP Danny Kinahan suggests Cameron run for president, "Across the big pond, there's a role that needs fillin."

Good to see David Cameron in playfully ebullient form at his last PM'S Question Time. Truly imperially impish!

This is actually the best and funniest PMQ's I've ever seen - not sure the new #England manager role should go to David Cameron somehow!

Dayyuummmm David Cameron is dropping the mic in this week's PMQ

Cameron really is enjoying his last PMQs

PMQ today is genuinely hilarious.
Cameron likening Corbyn to the Black Knight in Monty Python sketch was genius #JustAFleshWound

This is bizarre parliament sight: Tory MPs cheering Corbyn's statements, Labour MPs laughing at Cameron's jokes.

Corbyn came under fire from Cameron at one point when he compared the leadership struggles on both sides, saying: "We have had resignation, nomination competition and coronation, and they haven't even worked out the rules yet!"
It's David Cameron's last Prime Ministers Question Time and he's bantering Corbyn to the point its even making me chuckle.
Jereny Corbyn getting schooled at PMQ's

Amid the laughter Corbyn responded with:
"Democracy is an exciting and splendid thing, and I'm enjoying every moment of it" - Corbyn to Cameron in #PMQs
-- Jamie McGeever (@ReutersJamie) July 13, 2016
Corbyn enjoyed himself too, thanking Cameron's mum for her fashion advice.
Corbyn just made a mum joke to Cameron.. Oh damn
-- JME (@Jammy__P) July 13, 2016
Good show from Corbyn today - clearly enjoying the cut-and-thrust, getting the digs in but also warm wishes to Cameron and his family

It was not all jokes and merriment, however, as Cameron and Corbyn shared praise at stages during the session - perhaps most significantly when the opposition leader trumpeted Cameron's work to help legalise gay marriage.

@David_Cameron says one of his favorite moments of his years as prime minister was passing gay marriage legislation
-- Charisse Gibson (@OkayCharisse) July 13, 2016
Cameron signed off with one more moment of self deprecation, with one of his own quotes, saying: "I was the future once" - the line he used against Tony Blair all those years ago.
Cameron for PM!
