Ben Bradshaw Loses His Flag
Poor little Ben Bradshaw. Last night the Agriculture Minister pulled out of Derby Gate, near the House of Commons, in his environmentally friendly Toyota Prius and as he turned left into Whitehall by the Red Lion Pub one of the England flags adorning the car fell off. Cue hoots of derision from revellers at the pub which became famous for Charlie Whelan's indiscreet mobile phone conversation with the Prime Minister. Sadly Little Ben didn't notice what had happened and failed to stop to pick up his litter - or maybe he was just too embarrassed. I do hope Bradshaw's little mishap wasn't an omen for the match against Sweden tonight!
