The trouble is, it’s falling down – I was wondering about a play on ‘house of cards’ but while the inmates get regularly shuffled, they are nothing to laff at. This is serious stuff; they’re even talking about moving Parliament and all its works out of town! Which got me thinking. What an opportunity to get something right – a first for them and a welcome successor to the Jubilee and London 2012!
The only remaining question is where? And I thought: I know. Move the whole thing to Edinburgh – and quickly. Then all decisions would be in a very important sense Scotch. The local mini-House would have to move out to somewhere like the Orkneys.
And the pile at Westmiinster? Donate it to Rupert Murdoch, friend of the House and Spokesman for the People.
