Hors d’Oeuvres! Hors d’Oeuvres!

at

I now know why political groupings in Westminster are called “parties”, with the Speaker John Bercow forever calling out “hors d’oeuvres”. I dread to think of the hangover.

    We’re sooo much more loquacious over here:

    “Ah lads, c’mon now – let the man speak”
    “Will you take yer seat and listen to the minister”
    “Shut up now ye blackguard, enough of that auld guff”
    “For feck’s sake will ye stop throwing stuff at each other”
    “Stop that ye gurrier”
    “I’m getting annoyed now”
    I’m off to get the báta mór.
