Minister "pissed at Despatch Box"

Labour Watch has an excellent story that a senior Government minister was having difficulties remaining upright at the Despatch Box during a late-night adjournment debate earlier this week.

The minister in question is an unctuous little toad who regularly used to frequent the Press Gallery Bar of an evening in an attempt to pick up titbits about what people might be writing about the next day, so maybe he got into bad habits.

I don't know why more national newspaper diarists have not picked up on this story, but in my view it's well worth a read!

An ex Cabinet minister confirmed to me last night that "he was stinking of whiskey"

I have to admit that I misunderstood this heading at first, and took you to mean that a minister had taken a piss at the Despatch Box.

If anyone's interested, I know someone who took one whilst standing at the bar in Hull's Silhouette club...

Yes, well that would have been a good story wouldn't it?

Definitely - almost as good as the many stories about the chap who used the Silhouette's bar as a urinal...
