I’VE JUST come from the chamber where Lindsay Roy, the new MP for Glenrothes, was making his maiden speech. And a fine one it was, too.

His best line came when he was describing one of his recent canvassing experiences. The door was opened by a lady who was clearly the worse for drink. Having embarked on a conversation with her, Lindsay ventured: “How many drinks have you had?”

She replied: “Son, I’m an alcoholic, not an accountant.”

    Tom, sorry it’s off topic, but a Populus poll for The Times tomorrow has:

    Conservatives on 39% (-2)
    Labour on 35% (nc)
    LibDems on 17% (+1)

    Tory lead the lowest since April.
