And a Partridge in a Pear Tree...

Spotted: Three ex Chancellors of the Exchequer walking through Portcullis House together - Messers Howe, Lawson & Lamont. Can't think where they may have been...

Sorry, O/T, but I've just seen Brown on the BBC News at 1pm.
We had just seen pictures of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, then Brown appears. His first words:
"I think I speak for the whole world when I say..."
Is there no end to the man's megalomania?
By the way, at the risk of sounding paranoid, I notice that just about every news bulletin on radio begins with:
"Gordon Brown ....."
Any reference to Cameron is negative, as in:
"Mr Cameron was under fire today..."
"The Conservative leader was forced to defend himself from..."
Good old BBC!

It's not paranoia on your part (Bird @ 1:54 pm), it happens all the time.

Whenever Cameron makes a statement of any kind, you can be pretty sure that the BBC will report it along the lines of "David Cameron was attacked for saying... " rather than simply "David Cameron said... "

W.V. rativat. Is it a comment on the PBR?

Hopefully they were with at the Drinkers Alliance session. I am sure none of them want to see the end of the pub.

I wonder if they were discussing public pensions and how they might set an example.

Messers? M'Lords, surely?
