MPs welcome

Labour MP Eric Joyce has been charged with assault after a late-night fracas at a bar in the House of Commons. I think we must feel a little sorry for MPs. Nobody likes them any more. In the wake of all those scandals about duckponds and sex videos, they are as popular as traffic wardens. Perhaps their misery and frustration is bubbling to the surface and spilling out in random acts of violence.

It doesn’t help having to spend time in London on a regular basis. Having lived in the capital myself, I do know how crowds and traffic can pull nerves taut, like violin strings.

I would like to extend a warm invitation to stressed-out MPs to spend time in the delightfully rural environs of Fitton.

A walk in the country can calm the most turbulent of spirits.
