Alright for Some MPs Will Work Only 10 Days Between Now and June

Parliament will ‘prorogue’ this coming Thursday or Friday for the end of this session. The Privy Council advises the Queen to tell the Lord Chamberlain to boot out our Honourable Members, summoning them to only return again on May 8 for the State Opening of Parliament. A nice little holiday with a bit of campaigning for the local elections.

They will then rise again on May 21 for Whitsun Recess, returning on June 3. Where’s Guido going with this? Well most MPs will work for 10 days between now and June – and that is naively assuming that they will work on Fridays – which they won’t. Fifteen days off at least. Oink oink.
