Parliamentary exchange o' the day

From Lords Hansard:

"Lord Laird asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether the Ministry of Defence has any contracts with Starbucks for the supply of materials or services.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Defence (Baroness Taylor of Bolton): Information held centrally by the Ministry of Defence indicates that MoD has no direct contracts with Starbucks for the supply of materials or services".

Now if it was the infamous superheated McDonalds coffee I could understand... There's probably a joke involving The Pequod to be had, but I lack the energy to concoct one.

Note that the minister said that there are no DIRECT contracts!
