Parliament shuts down on 22 July so they can all scuttle off to wherever. The month of August used to be called the ‘silly season’ as newspapers basically had to make up headline news to replace the news coming out of Westminster. This year however it is the chance to leave behind the comedy club (except it has not been funny – just embarrassingly useless) and take time to reflect on the real issues. No more gaffs by Bozo and Co for a couple of months.
