Great Parliamentary Exchanges of Our Time

Mr. Crabb: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales when he last discussed the average street price of heroin in Wales with the Home Secretary.

Huw Irranca-Davies: Peter and I reckon the price of skag in The Mumbles is bloody shocking, boy bach, and they cut it with talcum powder too. Both my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I have regular discussions with ministerial colleagues on matters affecting Wales including such matters as drug-related crime. Source

Completely Off-Topic (sorry):

I'm just taking a short break from working in the General Election which is happening today in Gibraltar.

Early polls seem to show that the Gibraltar Socialist Labour Party (under Joe Bossano) who has formed an alliance with the Liberals (the only UK party who stand here locally) might edge out the Social Democrats under Peter Caruana - who despite their name are the centre-right party here and have been in power for 12 years so far.

Mr C, I have offered/threatened submitting a post for you when the dust settles and we know the result. Until then, I'm off back to the polling station.

Geoff - Glad to see you are fighting the good fight, and your report is eagerly awaited. Fingers crossed for the good guys....

Polling stations are now closed in Gibraltar, and there is a jazz band on at the Elliot Hotel to enjoy before the results start coming in. I'm going to go there to unwind after a very busy day .

I should have live-blogged this because although it might be boring for your readers in the UK, the intensity of any General Election is always contagious.

We had a reported 55% turnout by 6pm which is usual for here - Gibraltarians take their rights seriously.

According to our exit polls, the Gibraltar Socialist Labour Party have a 4% lead. An exit poll by the (sensible) local paper has us 6% behind. The local lefty paper isn't updating tonight although their reporters are on-site and drinking too much.

I'd say that considering a large number of people are always away from the Rock on business etc etc then as we have hit the standard UK percentage of voting we will have actually showed a higher average level of commitment than we'll see when the Brownies risk going to the polls in the UK.

It's not looking like a good night for right-of centre voters over here. I've just got home and am about to open a bottle of decent scotch.

A grim night, I fear.

Looks like your compatriots narrowly saw sense, so once the celebrating is over, a report from the front would be very welcome.
