Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Anoraks vs Macs
The Commons Speaker, John Bercow, has authorised a trial of changes to the voting system in parliament in response to complaints that an influx of MPs with surnames starting with Mc are creating long queues in the lobbies.

In July the MP for Kettering, Philip Hollobone, said the arrival of 25 MPs with surnames beginning with Mc - many of whom were among the 50 new Scottish National party MPs joining the Commons after the general election - were contributing to delays in the time it took to vote.

Wot, so the scottish Labour MPs who lost their seats were no true Scotsmen?
