Could it be that the first PMQ question to Osborne on Trident, while clearly meeting @BBClaurak ‘s criterion of making mischief for the Labour Party, could also have been some early preparation for a debate asap after 23/6/16 on renewal of the deterrent.

Maybe Central Office have made a judgement that it would be an ideal topic around which even the Tory ‘backwoodsmen’ and ‘backwoodswomen’ would have to support Cameron and Osborne or look pretty silly.

It would only work if Remain won, otherwise the Tories might have a lot more on their minds, not least who’s going to lead them, but it would help to bury the referendum which has cause all the grief.
