Quote for the Day

I am currently reading Philip Cowley's The Rebels. Which is an in depth analysis of how Blair mislaid his majority. An excellent read by all accounts if you like your books with a political edge. This little extract on voting against the whip brought a smile to my face whilst on a long train journey last night I'd share it with you. "Rebelling for the first time is routinely compared to a loss of virginity. The comparison's not perfect (not least because each division in the House of Commons takes between twelve and fifteen minutes".
