I love the snow! I especially love the way six inches of snow manages to pile up on tiny little twigs. It's the first time I can ever remember snow settling in central London.
I'm number one at DWP questions today and Teresa May's office have been on the phone, checking I've arrived safely in Parliament. I assume that's because she wants to come in on my question (as she's now the frontbench DWP-er for the Tories) although I gather she has also phoned Tony Lloyd's office so she might be umm-ing and ah-ing between child poverty and benefits take-up. Parliament hasn't quite ground to a halt, although the underground carpark has been closed and the restaurants are all shut, except for the Terrace cafeteria. But we've been told, contrary to what Ben Brogan says, that the Commons is sitting as normal, although the Lords are still making their minds up.
