MPs to end ‘Strangers’ appellation

MPs are to end use of the term Strangers – the centuries-old House of Commons name for members of the public. The House’s modernisation committee feels it is outdated and unfriendly. MPs are expected to agree today to a recommendation that Strangers be referred to instead as ‘a member of the public’.

Guido thinks the terms ‘our bosses’ or ‘the taxpayers’ have a better ring to them. Not that I like to be addressed by or even mix with politicians and such vermin. Just a week to go, fireworks…. this time… you’ll see…

“Labour MPs will unite behind Ed Miliband, once we find out what our policies are.”



It was only a tiny tiny collision.
