Parliament's South East Regional Grand Committee met yesterday morning, in Reading Town Hall. You can read the Order Paper for the Committee here. Reading Town Hall is of course in the Reading East constituency, and the Reading East MP was naturally enough in his place, the order paper reveals, as it shows the names of a number of MPs from the region who had tabled questions. A certain Mr Salter was not among them, although the meeting took place in his favourite constituency. When I have seen the Hansard of the committee I shall inform readers of the no doubt splendid contributions made. His Master's Voice has not yet seen fit to copy out a press release from Mr Salter on the stonking wonderfulness of his speech at the committee - but they will, they will. Whether he made one or not.
Oh and I was pleased to see my name in the frame as the LibDem candidate for Reading West. Not. Going. To. Happen. The LibDems approached me in 2004 to see if I was interested in crossing the floor to them, but I was not. But Was, good on you, keep it going, there is more to come out from that particular section of the dungheap.
