Looks like the must be selling extra strong sherry in the parliamentary bars. One has been closed due to two members fighting. Well I suppose someone has to set an example.

That's a little bit misleading. The two people fighting were not members they were employees. As far as reporting goes so far no members of parliament were involved and the brawl took place outside the sports and social club not inside it!

The incident took place between two employees not members. I stand corrected. The bar in question has recently been taken back to control of the estate from a private contractor and has previously been the subject of problematic drinkers. It seems it’s dayscare also numbered.

Could you answer my question above please. And as you do very often I simply reported on something that I was told about by a member of the Estate.

Also just to clarify it was indeed outside of the bar which is within the confines of the Estate. Dreadful isn’t it people fighting within the grounds of parliament and needing hospital treatment.

Freudian slip but "daycare" seems more apt

The details are a bit vague. Both men involved were parliamentary employees and both middle-aged. Should have known better. I can only assume that the bar is within the Palace of Westminster. Since this is a place of work, and remembering several incidents there before, I do not think that there should be any licenced bars there at all. Perhaps I am being a bit puritanical.

Indeed a recent documentary said the House of Lords was the best care home going and they get paid for going.

Two men fight outside a bar hardly newsworthy and it's stretching it to classify it as political. I do regret that someone has got hurt though.

It probably wouldn't be reported except for the fact of where it was.

I really don't mind MPs having a place thats secure to relax and have a drink if they've put the hours in.

I don't subscribe to the view that all MPs are lazy bastards who ride the gravy train. Some I've met are decent genuine people who want to change the world for the better. Let them have their G&T in relative comfort and safety I say.

I realise that won't be a universally held view

The people who were fighting were employees of the estate, possibly gardeners, guards etc . I think the points are

1. Having a bar at a place of work in this day and age

2. Drinking at the taxpayers expense.

3. Wouldnt everyone like a secure place to relax and drink , we all in our own way are trying to change the world for the better.

Now there is a disturbance in the Lords with an arrest. This place really should be renamed The Palace of Discontent.
