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...

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
