What are MPs for?
“What am I for?” asked one MP plaintively, before launching into a tirade against the leader who had plunged his party into coalition and then denied him a job.
The lost soul was rescued from his existential crisis by a couple of friendly faces from another party who stepped in before he said anything too loudly that he would later regret. But his question has echoed around Westminster all week as Conservative and Liberal Democrat MPs, with their divergent policies and priorities, try to get used to the idea of being one happy Government.
If you don't know what you are for, what about the poor voters who don't know what they voted for?
