Why is Margaret Beckett Given a Range Rover?
Yesterday I was walking through Speaker's Court in the House of Commons when a top of the range Range Rover pulled up. I assumed it was carrying a foreign dignatory. I was wrong. Out stepped two security guards followed by the Minister of State for Housing, Margaret Beckett! A Minister of State would normally emerge from a Toyota Prius or a Ford Mondeo. I know she is an ex Foreign Secretary, but what on earth is she doing with a security detail and a bullet proof, top of the range Range Rover? Who on earth would want to harm Mrs Beckett?
