In fact, not the merest spark of enlightenment at all from the non-stop barking and baying Commons.
It was clear from the start of PMQs that Tory MPs, having seen Blue Dave duffed up by Red Ed last week, were pumped up to shout down the chief comrade at every turn.
So, when the weekly knockabout began, the Labour leader received the full hairdryer treatment from the Tory benches the moment he stood up.
As the wall of sound fell on Red Ed, he had barely got a word out when up popped Speaker Bercow to admonish a wailing banshee of a Conservative.
And then, when the chief comrade finally asked his question on what the difference was between the PM's position on energy and the Big Six's, the Speaker had to intervene again as the wave of noise this time reversed and washed over Flashman.
When the Tory head boy was able to get a word in, he highlighted how, having derided the Coalition for urging consumers to switch, the Labour leader had, ahem, switched himself. As the Conservative choir roared, Dave said: "He comes here every week and attacks Tory policy: he goes home and adopts Tory policy to help his own family."
Voice breaking, Ed snipped back, that if consumers wanted a champion on their side, they should switch Prime Ministers. That got the Labour heart beating again.
The chief comrade cheerfully branded Dave the "unofficial spokesman for the energy companies" and said the PM's enthusiasm for siding with them was so great, people should call them "the Big Seven". The comrades liked that and roared some more.
Ed was not finished. Quoting Dave's view when in opposition on the regulator getting tough with those nasty, overcharging energy giants, the chief comrade shouted how the PM had gone from "Rambo to Bambi in four short years". The crimson tide was by now turning purple.
Straining his voice, Flashman felt he knew what the devious chief comrade was up to - avoiding talking about the economy because he had no answer to rising growth, falling unemployment and a reducing deficit. "He is just a weak leader with no ideas," blasted the PM.
As eyes rolled wildly and members from both sides hooted, bayed and cackled, one could not help quietly reflecting on what a fine, uplifting example of democracy this surely was.
