Business in the House today

Sometimes Westminster is a bizarre place. We've just had FCO questions; weighty stuff on Burma, the Middle East and Zimbabwe. Followed by a backbencher reading out a poem about newts and talking about 'bucketloads of bat droppings'. (He's introducing a 10 Minute Rule Bill).

I did get quite excited when I saw the screens announcing the adjournment debate tonight, on "Open Window Composting". I thought this was a new concept, involving people chucking their tea bags, potato peel and banana skins down into the street, where they would fester and decompose, and everyone could help themselves to communal compost. On closer examination it turns out to be a debate on "Open Windrow Composting". I have no idea what that means.
