The tale of Julian Huppert and the BBC doughnuts

Liberal Democrat MP for Cambridge Julian Huppert was tempted by a team from the Daily Politics proffering doughnuts the other day.

You can see what happened by watching here at around 1 hour 25 minutes in.

I just wonder what would have happened if he had been offered some chips or some pizza as he confessed to being more partial to savoury items.

The only member to take a doughnut was the SNP’s Angus MacNeill. Maybe it was the sugar rush that caused him to tweet today during Prime Minister’s Questions:

If he’s read any papers this morning, he’d know Nick was in Brazil at Rio + 20.

The interview with Baroness Jay, when she described what was on offer at tea in the House of Lords, took me right back to the days of Enid Blyton and her Mallory Towers books. Anchovy toast and crumpets. Maybe that would have been more up Julian Huppert’s street.
