Yesterday in Parliament....

Faced with all that happening at the moment, there are number of things that our parliamentarians might be concerning themselves with. The economy perhaps? Law and order? Our various wars?

However, our man in Wellingborough has his mind on something else:

"Mr. Bone: To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills if he will hold discussions with university authorities on the provision of toilet facilities in universities.

Mr. Lammy: We have no plans for any specific discussions with university authorities on this subject. Universities are independent and autonomous bodies and how they choose to designate their facilities is a matter for them".

Now I could make a facetious comment or two about the mute testimony that walls, pavements , waste bins, phone boxes etc give to the ingenuity of inconvenienced students, but what on earth possessed him to ask the question? I am bewildered. Meanwhile, let it be noted that Lammy has said something sensible. For once.

we may surmise it will be concerning the provision of 'Asian crappers', as they are known in the Army

(which institution, incidentally, is well accustomed to 'catering' for all traditions, and takes these things in its stride, so so speak: well it's better than having people stand on the rim of the bowl ...)

Is this in response to that Mancunian nonsense?

Yes, a completely bone question.

What's wrong with issuing shovels to all students? After all, when they leave higher education (if that's what it is) the vast majority will spend their lives shovelling shit - if they manage to find employment at all.

Much useful insight gents. Perhaps questions should also be asked about Mr Bone's very 'non-u' language too....
