Short Changed?
Posted Tuesday, 5 February 2008 at 14:27

This morning I gave a talk about climate change at Samuel Whitbread Community College to bright and gifted children, from schools within my constituency.

It’s bad enough having to stand in front of a room full of teenagers who think they know everything; when they know they know everything, it’s just that little bit harder!

I feel as though I short changed them slightly, as I had to dash from the school to London; it’s always difficult trying to fit in constituency engagements on Parliamentary days, and I quite frequently get caught out.

I was on the platform at Kings Cross on 7/7 leaving London to attend a factory visit in the constituency. We felt the ground shake as the train moved away not knowing what it was.

Later that day I vowed I would never 'bunk off' again.

Today at 8am just getting out of my car outside the school, and the phone went with a message from the Chief Whip, to say that David Cameron was calling a meeting of the parliamentary party for 10.15am and to be there.

I couldn't let the teachers or the students down, so I sent my apologies and went into the school.

That's me in trouble again then!

A friend of mine has a girlfriend living in South Africa.

He phones her every single day and yesterday was telling me, in jest, how expensive women were, as it costs him 25p per minute.

So let's work this out 10 x 25p = £2.50 per day x 7 = £17.50 per week!

That's cheap! What are you on about women are expensive, you should be glad she's in South Africa!!
