Is Hughie a good egg? Does he need another good egg to come to his rescue. The old boys' network in full flow,,,

Old boys network? We all have MPs.

Surely the MP is right that the wheels of justice are grinding slowly. As the Guardian reminds us: Our Little Sister tested positive in January, charges were issued in May and yet there is still no sign of a panel convening to hear the case.

Purely coincidental, obviously.

I know the standard required to be an MP isn't that high these days, but I'm not sure the electorate are going to vote for a corpse. His father died at least ten years ago, and could never have been an MP, as he sat in the House of Lords.

Still, why let the facts get in the way of a bit of toff bashing eh?

I'm not a journalist the anorak why should i spend hours researching it. His family have been Tory MPs, working out which one is the hon lord margdale and which one isn't is quite difficult. Did his father go to the Royal Agricultural College or not? And did MP Benyon? I think so. I also think MPs trying to influence things unfairly is the issue here but if you think it's toff bashing c'est la vie.
