Who Carved an Anti-Blair Slogan into the House of Commons Woodwork?

I've just discovered a very gossipy website called HolyMoly. This particular item caught my eye...

"In the House of Commons chamber, the table in the centre - given by the people of Canada - has a stack of books laid out directly in front of Tony Blair. The books weren't there a few years ago... Around the time of Otis Ferry's invasion, someone - and no-one knows (or is any closer to discovering) who - carved on it the legend: 'Tony Blair Is A C**t!' Because it's carved into wood and leather, it's a bit tricky to patch up: hence the stash of books."

A challenge to any MP reading this blog - take a peek under the books and tell us how true this is.

I've just read that story as well. Not sure I believe it. Enjoyed the story about Ainsley Harriott. A man who never fails to annoy.

This is nonsense. If it had occurred, it could easily have be fixed by expert french polishing. They can do wonders.

I think Gordon Brown deserves an ASBO and a pint! Hilarious!

It's my understanding that the books are volumes of Hansard and are free to move around the table at will, they're certainly in the Australian House of Reps. It also seems odd that someone using the table could have carved it in there without their fellow MPs or the Speaker notcing.
