So... Tom Harris is off to the Palace, and Cinders here is waiting to do a 90 minute slot on the green benches PPS-ing in a European Affairs debate, covering for one of the Foreign Office PPS's who is otherwise engaged.
There aren't many speakers around today, as it's a one line whip, but that just gives licence to those in the Chamber to speak for as long as they want. Bill Cash started three minutes ago, so by the time my presence is required in half an hour, he'll just be getting into full flow.
I may not have been invited to the Palace but I was, however, in a lunch meeting today with the Earl of Sandwich, who asked me if I wanted a sandwich. I will probably wake up at 4am having thought of something funny to say about that.
