No sooner have I started blogging than I have to leave this parish unattended for two weeks for a long-planned, long-awaited holiday to the Deep South. It’s our first holiday in two years and we’re taking in Jackson, New Orleans, Birmingham, Nashville and Memphis. It’s fair to say tomorrow’s 7.45am flight can’t come soon enough!
The trip means that as well as Wednesday’s Spending Review (and Wimbledon), I won’t be here for the second reading of James Wharton’s European Union (Referendum) Bill – a debate I wouldn’t otherwise have missed.
