I have failed as a parent! My son is an intelligent man, he’s had a good education and worked hard ending up as an accountant. Today I hear that he has only just found out that the House of Commons do not have a weird system of counting the eyes and the noses shock. Made me laugh out loud when I read the WhatsApp!🤣🤣🤣🤣

Under that system there would be twice as many eyes as noses. That would get bills passed more effectively.

Have had a miserable few Amy’s but that made me laugh out loud which made my OH jump as he was watching tv with his eyes closed but assured me that he wasn’t snoozing!
