The PM was today asked at Prime Minister's Questions to give a ranking for her performance over Brexit so far out of 10.
In doing so Pete Wishart, the SNP MP for Perth and North Perthshire, earned a rebuke from Commons Speaker John Bercow after attempting to put Theresa May on the spot.
He asked: 'On a scale between one to ten, how does the Prime Minister think her Brexit is going, with ten being all going perfectly, we know what we want to achieve and we know how to get it, and one being chaotic cluelessness. I know what I'd give the Prime Minister, what will she give herself?'

Mrs May responded: 'Can I say to him that I think anybody who saw the success we had in negotiating phase one of Brexit and getting that sufficient progress will say that actually this is a Government that knows what it's doing and is getting on with the job and is doing well.'
After PMQs, Mr Wishart tweeted a clip of his question with the caption: 'My question at PMQs. What you can't see is me holding up a sign saying 'nul points'. Which is exactly what she should get.'
