When even I.D cards wouldn't work
TB should have opted for Joan Ryanair instead
What's the old proverb? Oh yeh, once bitten twice shy. What with the blunder that was Tony Blair missing a vote (and the subsequent defeat of government legislation by one vote) due to a chronically inept miscalculation by the Government Chief Whip, you could bet your bottom Euro on Blair being present for the vote on I.D Cards. La plus ca change...
This time our intrepid PM is stuck in South Africa due to a suspect dodgy engine (an airplane's rather than his own). I am sure the Whips Office have done their sums correctly this time (chortle, chortle) or are we looking at another Government defeat by one vote?
