      I’m guessing the awards are not a ‘dry’ affair.

      There there. I think it’s commiseration for those who lost, but the second ‘there’ has also got lost…

      It couldn’t possibly be that Guido’s minions are illiterate.

    Perhaps Cyprus security has just been weakened a bit:

    Kind of obvious that Cyprus is a good base for monitoring Mid East, but the tapping of underseas fiber cables is possibly something that some would not want revealed.

    How do they judge the winner? Biggest expense claim? Most number of planted questions asked in a week? Laziest attendance record?

    I can think of Guido making right mischief with alternative awards!

    Wasn’t Philip Davies one of only 5 Tories to vote against green energy taxes and didn’t he give Chris Patten a roasting at the select committee?

    Knife traitor Cameron now and get him installed as the new Tory leader and they can still win the next election.
