She was quoting a councillor in Islington, but she still said ‘piss’ in questions to Transport Minister Theresa Villiers yesterday. Because in Islington, the House was told, men ‘piss’ against everything. It’s recorded in Hansard forever more.

THORNBERRY: Crossrail is currently building a huge new station at Farringdon, which we welcome. However, will the Minister join me in urging Crossrail to build some toilets at Farringdon station?
