I become a Labour MP

Last of the Westminster Hours before recess. They have all three of us (one MP from each main party) in to chew over the by-election, housing, floods and so on. Ten minutes between three doesn’t go very far – and it was a bit of a gallop. Mark d’Arcy kept referring to me as Lynne Jones (a Labour MP). I didn’t comment at first – and then thought perhaps humour would be best – but as it was Radio 4 I settled for hissing under my breath. It happens. I have been called in the chamber as Julia Goldsworthy before now – and given the disparity in our ages (she’s half my age) am simply grateful!
