Micromnagement, or what's wrong with using the 'phone?

From Hansard:


"Mr. Heathcoat-Amory: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many visits were made by Ministers to Brussels, other than on NATO business, in the financial year 2007-08. [264567]

Caroline Flint: During the financial year 2007-2008 our Ministers made a total of 149 visits to Brussels. These visits included both ministerial visits to our bi-lateral embassy in Brussels and the UK representation to the EU.

One hundred and forty nine ministerial visits, or to all intents and purposes, three a week. Someone more suspicious would think someone - all of them - had lovers in Brussels. After all, it is not worth going to for the scenery or the delightful company of the Brusselois.
