Stay Classy

The last parliament was collectively disgraced because of how various members exploited their position for personal advantage. Thankfully a new intake of MPs ensures that this is a thing of the past.

Louise Bagshawe, Tory MP, A-list candidate and 'chick-lit' author sets the tone for the new parliament:

For the MPs gathered in the Commons to debate the possibly rather dry subject of the Energy Bill, it was an unexpected interruption.

One minute Louise Bagshawe, a newly-elected Tory and 'Cameron cutie', was discussing solar batteries.

The next she was happily plugging her new novel Passion, written as part of her other career as a successful author of 'chick-lit' fiction.

The 39-year-old mother of three told MPs to buy her book, which, she reminded them, had just won a literary award for romantic fiction.

Oh well.
