Mr Speaker

this is a bit before the event, and interesting to read just a few days later. I am involved in a book project at the moment which covers the mid-90s in London, and is very interesting historically, because it seems so close and is so different.

Yes I know it is the vile Independent, but Simon Carr has always been able to write, and it is worth reading.

Interesting that Salter has allegedly developed a drink problem since 2005 - he did not have one before, cannabis was his drug of choice. I wonder why?

More information please.

Alcoholism.

Home-made bongs are just rough.

She is a keen biker and has been called 'The House of Commons bike' ( Keith Hill MP - does he have practical experience?)
