With the MPs away, we can get on the terrace
With the MPs away, for mere plebs like me who have Parliamentary passes, the ringing of the bell for the end of the Parliamentary term is an important event. It means we get on to the terrace at Parliament which is otherwise reserved for the great and the good (ie MPs). So on one of those rare days of sunshine, we went to the terrace for lunch today. And then we get there to discover work is being done on the kitchens. So food was a bit limited - a sandwich. With this short interlude over, I am now back in the office at Cowley Street.
