The Other I

Redirecting attention

Filed under: Political thoughts,The English — theotheri @ 1:41 pm

This is the time of year when the major political parties hold their annual conferences.  They are particularly important this year because there will be an election in less than eight months and the parties are facing a deficit that threatens to derail the country for decades if it is not reduced.

In the midst of this most serious discussion, a marvellous story emerged from last year’s conference.

An exceptionally attractive member of a Tory think tank was being repeatedly propositioned by a Member of Parliament.  Finally, he thrust his hotel key into her hand and said “come tonight at 3:30;  I promise you a wonderful time.”

Some time later, another MP propositioning her also refused to take no for an answer.  “All right,” she said, “here is my room key.  Come by tonight at 3:30.”

Neither MP has been named.

But they each know who the other is.
