    I had fizzy orange and my special medicine for lunch. It was the right thing to do.

    Do MP’s do any work? they seem to spend their entire lives in restaurants with long lunches & bottles of wine – presumably they then clear off to their offices in the afternoon for a quick nap.

      I did not leave the office in case Obama Beach called. It was the right thing to do.

      I wonder if their lunch date will be as much of a cause of frustration as it was for that twat Mitchell?

      MP’s work between 11:00 and 11:30 when lunch begins, except on Wednesday when due to poor timing, we have to start work at 12:00 and listen to some idiot drone on for 30minutes, with the excitement of ‘is Ed Millibug going to drone his questions or use 2 tones of voice?’
      There is the added excitement of: will Ed Balls wind up the windbag on the other side? Then after a hard days work, it’s off to lunch for 11 hours at 12:30.
      Sadly there’s these big blokes called whips, nothing to do with prostitutes, although probably is: but that’s kept secret by the ‘whips’, probably why they’re selected, don’t want everyone to know about it.
      Anyway, these whips, big blokes intimidating when they dress up in their high-heels and skirts, or is that Herman the Harman? anyway they keep sheeping us into some room to count us, can’t have us all over the country thinking we rule, that’s what the whips are for, anyhoo we’re rounding up – though, you’d have thought it’d be easier to just buy a round, and call us to the bar …. but instead they ring a bell, and we all have to come running. Pavlovian experiment anyone?

      Dr Nuts says:

      Italy lends at 4%, borrows at 7%, isn’t that normal for Euro-economics?

      And I’m sure Farage mentioned a Greecie pull-out, my mind had a nightmare image for too long to just forget…

      A Greasie pull-out – that’s the kind of bail-out nobody wants to remember, and if anyone suggests Sh*t Creek, that’s the kind of put up job most wish they’d never started.

      Except Gordon, and Mandelson…
      They love Europe, I wonder why?

          Oh, I know the idea, aren’t we paying it at £15m a day!

          I’m watching to see how this settles. I want out, strangely Greece wants to stay in, despite they’re better off NOW out, and when the stragglers quit, that’ll destroy the economies like Germany and France which were struggling but without the Euro disaster, would have survived.

          I remember couple of years back, the talk in Germany was Merkal was already printing the Mark. What’s made her change her mind? I can’t see it, there’s wheels behind the Heads of State that’s pulling levers in the desire to obliterate Euroland in a financial armageddon.

          Merkal’s too smart to not know what the implications are, but she’s still playing the game. Who’s offering what to who for how much?

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
