amusing quote

"I once asked a whip how many of his MPs were "slightly loopy". He replied, "Slightly there's no slightly about it. There are plenty who are stark staring mad. I think its a form af autism: they can stand up in the House of Commons and make what sounds a perfectly rational speech on investment in the railways, but the moment they sit down they are completely insane again. There is a man in the House of Commons who believes - really, truly believes - that 10 Downing Street is being manipulated by a witches' coven in Gloucestershire"
The Political Animal by Jeremy Paxman

If only I'd thought of that.
