16 MPs Turn Up to EU Debate in Commons

The picture above shows MPs in the Commons right now debating EU justice and home affairs opt outs. Guido can count sixteen. And the three main parties wonder why they are losing so many votes to UKIP…

      Blair started all this, sending them back to their constituencies Thursday lunchtime. As per the lazy bar stewards don’t bother turning up Thursday mornings.

      How much are we paying them for three day week?

      Neil Hamilton is the kiss of death for UKIP.

      I can’t believe Farage has allowed this convicted criminal and his bizarre publicity-seeking wife into the party.

      We would never condone intrusive surveillance in the non public areas of the Palace of Westminster .

      It would clearly be a breach of the sacrosanct right to the privacy
      of our respective members .

      No I should have said to keep our members away from tbe public gaze .

      Not being clear am I — to keep our members in the private sphere …

      Oh Hell ….!!

      There is no minimum number of people for a debate although it is hard to see it being less than three–someone in the Speaker’s chair and one on each side.
      The quorum of the House of Commons is 40 members for any vote, including the Speaker and four tellers. The House is particularly empty at present as there is a sale of paper shredders at Curry’s.

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
