Have you heard the one about the Duck House? Yes.

INTERESTING hustings for the Hampstead and Kilburn parliamentary seat last night. More soon. The only shame of it all was that half an hour was spent talking about – yet again – the expenses row again.

There was even mention of duck houses and moats, as if we hadn’t heard about all of that a squillion times. Of course, it has been an important debate and changes to the expenses system are vital, but jokes about moat-clearing are now achingly dull. The discussion was much better when it switched to Afghanistan, the economy and immigration.
