MPs in Bellamy’s last night were being given priority service – with a queue for drinks, the barman by-passed those at the front and asked MPs joining the queue at the back what they would like. I saw this happen twice. I don’t blame the barman of course (or the MPs actually in the cases last night) – it is no doubt a directive from above telling the barman to do so.
But honestly, why do MPs need priority getting a drink? Is it because they have urgent things to attend to and need to get them down as quick as possible?
Is it important to their role as public servants that they get pissed quicker?
