Mulholland in House of Commons coat calamity
Pub campaigning MP Greg Mulholland got himself into a spot of coat-related bother following a Parliamentary drinks reception last week, Snifter can shockingly reveal.

After a day spent rallying against the pesky beer duty escalator last Wednesday, Mulholland thought he would unwind at the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group’s Xmas drinks party, held with the British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA).

However, in an email to Snifter on Friday morning, Mulholland explained that another guest had managed to leave Stranger's Bar carrying his (somewhat more expensive) coat.

“When I came back the day after, sure enough a similar looking one was left, but from Burtons not Slaters, so whoever took it took the wrong one thinking it was theirs.

“In the pockets were a couple of recipes from the Slug and Lettuce and a day return from Epsom to London. Although cold on Wednesday night (curry on the way home helped) I couldn’t be too cross, as I did the same thing to someone else a couple of years ago!”

And how did Snifter respond?

“I thought Yorkshiremen didn’t wear coats.”

Vintage.
