Loyal address by Richard Benyon MP
“Someone once said to me that deprivation in west Berkshire was when Waitrose runs out of balsamic vinegar”
“In the election I faced a Labour candidate that was born the year after I was selected to fight the seat I hold. Teams of therapists will be needed for me to confront the brutal reality that I’ve gone from young thruster to old codger, with nothing in between.”
Reply by Kwasi Kwarteng MP
“May I reassure the PM I am still young, still thrusting.”
“When the exit poll was revealed there were gasps of anguish, despair and deep, bitter disappointment – and that was only members of the Parliamentary Labour Party.”
How to evict Corbynista supporting sons…disable the Wi-Fi
“The builders carrying out Mrs U’s kitchen-expansion scheme inadvertently cut off the landline — and with it the wi-fi — while they were renewing ancient wiring. So for the best part of two days, we lost access to the internet.

Was this the solution to my problem? There was no point in charging them rent, since they were in no position to pay. And I hadn’t the heart to starve them.
But why not cancel our subscription to our service provider and declare Utley Towers an internet-free zone?” Full story here.
