Two stars of the new intake
23/06/2010 23:35:00

Nick Boles and Jesse Norman are the new Conservative MPs for Grantham & Stamford and Hereford & South Herefordshire respectively. Today they proved themselves to be absolute stars.

At 3pm when I should have been settled down somewhere to watch England vs Slovenia, I had to go to a meeting that went on for nearly an hour. As I emerged desperate to find somewhere to watch the second half, I got a text directing me to a room Nick had somehow procured with a large flat screen telly and was handed a beer by Jesse. I am deeply in their debt.

For the next 30 minutes, England absolutely battered Slovenia. How could they play so badly a few days ago when they can play this well? Unfortunately, in the last 15 minutes they got nervous and stopped playing so there were a few anxious moments but we made it so the dream is still alive. The lack of a second goal, however, means it's Germany on Sunday rather than what on paper at least would have been an easier tie against Ghana on Saturday...
