The Lady in Malcolm’s Life is guid Scots-Irish. Could she be anything else from a loyalist Portadown background?
However, she went into convulsions of mirth with George Eaton’s gem.
In essence, it goes like this:
- Tory back-benchers have laid an amendment to the Queen’s Speech. They regret that it didn’t contain an EU referendum bill.
- David Cameron has indicated his support for this amendment.
- Were the amendment to be carried, it would be a lost vote of confidence, and cameron would constitutionally be obliged to resign.
Why would the Opposition vote against the amendment?
