Where’s Ed Milliband?


It’s a time when MPs old and new swear allegiance to the Crown before parlaiment re-convenes. It’s a tradition that goes back 400 years, as does the appointment of the Speaker of the House, or in this case the re-appointment of the Speaker. John Bercow was re-elected and, as is the tradition, dragged from the back benches to his position overlooking the House. David Cameron took his place as Elected Prime Minister and Harriet Harman came off the subs bench to stand in for the opposition who have yet to appoint a new leader. Meanwhile Ed’s rumoured to be keeping his ‘ed low in Ibiza, but he needed to be sure someone saved his seat for when he gets back to work.

So that’s what happened to Ed’s tombstone!

Prince Charles’ black spider letters No. 1


Poor old Charlie boy takes some stick, don’t he just? Tree hugging, badger culling, flower talking, carbuncles, army boots… and of course Diana. He’s next in line to the throne, but Mummy’s keeping her bum firmly in place whilst a string of ¬†young pretenders queue up behind. Will he make it before he needs his Zimmer and will there be any blue left on the Union Jack when he does? Now they’re raking out his old letters to Prime Ministers past and long gone. Well at least it keeps the spotlight of Air-miles Andy and his lot!
