Chicken tikka masala all by myself in the legendary Shish Mahal while listening into a fascinating conversation by retired civil servants next to me. (I did thank them at the end to much mutual laughter)

I think I was served by Mr Ali's son. Anyway delightful place and great food. You'll know why it matters if you've read my words on it!

All perfectly legitimate. Nothing dodgy about this at all.
Breaking: Boris Johnson met Sue Gray for a private meeting to discuss her long-awaited report into #Partygate. More on @SkyNews with @SamCoatesSky

Such an incredible image that my bullshit detector started going off - but it's real and checks out. Amazing photo
Some people seem out of their time - like this chap who looks more like a Beatnik from 1950 than from 1850, but he was actually photographed 170 years ago. The glasses give the impression he may have been blind, yet he still paid to have a photograph taken of himself with his cat

Seriously - have a think about that tweet and then go and have a nice quiet sit somewhere and have a think again.
And Otto would give everything he has to prevent anyone who would reverse this from being elected.

Here's an interesting observation. When I tweet about Dorries, no-one comes to her defense

Replying to @Otto_English
Reminds me of the Farageist strain and their arguments against MEPs getting computers etc.

I'm in Glasgow and it's raining. Going to hike it down to Finnieston and look at that famous crane.

It's a very dangerous precedent. Up until 1911 MPs weren't paid and were thus expected to fund themselves. As a result only rich men (of course) did it. Sunak probably thinks it's a good look but it sure as hell is not.
Rishi Sunak is so rich that he has been personally paying for flights to the US to conduct government business

MPs didn't receive a working salary until 1918. I know there's a "they get paid too much already" thing that happens and freeloading Johnson hasn't helped but if you want good politicians from a range of backgrounds you need to fund them properly

Like, I'm all for saving the taxpayer a bit of cash, but this seems weirdly Victorian – as though he's a philanthropist rather than a government representative
