    Seats that declare?! They are inanimate objects. It’s just like when Downing Street, or number ten, are reported as having said something. My road has never issued any audible speeches - and by the way I live at number ten.

    For pity's sake, please stop.

    I am now flicking between 10 different blogs.

    I can't cope.

    I'm going to lie down in a darkened room

    I hope nobody comes here today wanting to know who won the GB book, as it’s now disappeared off the main page......

    That, in the circumstances, will be another broken Tory promise!

    Now, there's a missed opportunity in the lexicon of classic British comedies:

    * Carry On From The Back Benches *

    I'd pay good money to see that.

    Why are you watching it is an "interesting" question but why are they showing it is of course a much more fascinating one.

    That's it, I'm off to seek out Huw (learned to spell his name now) Edwards. Eddie, you and me are done!

    P.S., we've had that strapline before and it's not true anyway - I take the train or drive - PM never "gets me home".

    And so are chairs, but it doesn't stop them speaking at meetings or to the media.

    Yup, Ap, and if you work "from" home then it doesn't "get" you anywhere. (PM that is)

    It "gets" me into the kitchen where the radio is, but I can cheat and listen to it on the tv in the sitting room where the pc is (which isn't in my "office", because of a complicated thick wall problem which I shan't bore you with)

    It didn't get me home yesterday either. It dragged me back to the office after a day in Perivale. It was the job of Genius to get me home to a greatly appreciated glass of Vino collapso, before logging on to do emails and online calls with the US 'til 10pm. And I wonder why I don't have a life :(

    Valery (9), you are a wise woman, even if you do have stupid walls.

    New strapline - "PM: It gets you nowhere".

    Ugh, I now have a very old Olivia Newton-John minor hit in my head.

    Who is Olivia Newton-John minor?

    Olivia Newton-John's daughter - or is it just posh boys that works with?

    Stephen (12), LOL.
