MPs no more

Mark Devenport | 12:31 UK time, Monday, 12 April 2010

I've just received a call from London to advise me that parliament has now been dissolved and no candidate can under any circumstances be referred to as an MP. Hence Gordon Brown MP is now just Gordon Brown. But one MP next to me (Martina Purdy) points out that one of our local candidates may still be spoken about in that way. Guess who?

UPDATE: Congratulations Axeman, Mrs Grey and Man of Pie. The answer was Sir Reg, who may or may not become an MP but will always be an Empey.
