Uh-Oh, Random Searching!!!

Recess Monkey (14th in the Bloggers Polidex league) alerts us to the news that all Pass-Holders except MPs will, by order of the Serjent-at-Arms, be subject to random searching. Given that The Sun exposed the existence of cocaine traces in most of the loos in the House not too long ago, this may have more bearing on the War on Drugs than the War on Terror. Wonkette frequently reports stories of stoned slacker Washington interns having to resign after being caught with joints in their bags and wraps in their purses. I fear this may be something that crossess the Atlantic to Westminster.

My suggestion is to do all your drugs before coming into Portcullis house, or better still give them to me..

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
