Attlee derailed in the Lords

This from The Woolsack...

An amusing exchange this afternoon between Earl Attlee and My Lord Adonis in the House of Lords.

Attlee quoted a certain Prof David Begg a number of times in his speech, citing him as an expert commentator as based on his recent article in the Financial Times.

Adonis interjected asking whether Lord Attlee was aware David Begg is a member of First Groups' board?


Cue goldfish impression and shocked looks on the government benches.
