TS allowed into parliament
TS was treated to a quick whisk through parliament this week as ever and was in total awe of the ornate high ceilings and very distinguished men and women quietly huddled in important-looking groups. No doubt discussing matters of state or the latest events in the Big Brother house.
The gracious host, Lib Dem treasurer Lord Clement Jones, treated TS to high tea in the dining area, where everything from the carpet and upholstery to the Lords emblems on cups was a deep red.
Lord Jones told TS that this was in contrast to the House of Commons, which is decorated throughout in green. ‘It’s simple really,’ Lord Jones explained. ‘No matter how blotto a member may be from the night before, they always know where they are.’
