I just walked out of my office building to grab a coffee - its a Friday afternoon, I'm flagging and need caffeine - only to stumble across a Summer Fete in full swing in what is usually the smokers corner. Its so random, especially since members are in their constituencies and most staff have also already disappeared for the weekend. There's a coconut throwing stand, a tombola and even a maypole. Oh, and orange squash of course - gallons of it. I even saw one lonesome Morris dancer! Unofortunately/fortunately, I've had to return to my office as I have quite a few things to do. Its just strange to see a part of parliament transformed into a little English village. There's even authentic hay bales for people to sit on!
