Lib Dem MP Greg Mulholland becomes first MP to play rugby for GB

Greg GB 3Greg Mulholland, Lib Dem MP for Leeds North, made a little bit of history last week:

On Saturday 12th July I had the huge honour of becoming the first MP to pull on the famous Great Britain white shirt with the red and blue ‘V’, and play for his country at rugby league. I was selected as part of the 20 man GB side who defeated Australia in the over 35s international in Warrington.

How did he get on? Well, you can find out over at the party’s Ad Lib blog, where Greg has all the details…

    Greg’s certainly a TRYer. Does he do political CONVERSIONS, though?

    I see he was a WINGER but doesn’t say whether ‘right’ or ‘left’. Not in the CENTRE though!

    I shall stop here before I get to Props, hookers, sin-bins and up-and-unders. 😉

  • Since this is a congratulatory thread, may I take the opportunity to draw to general attention the fact that on 18 July Annette Brooke MP and John Thurso MP were appointed to the Privy Council. This is an unusual distinction for members of parliament who have not held government office or been party leaders, and we can take genuine pride in this well-deserved recognition of their services to public life in general and to parliament in particular.
