Has it really come to this?
It would appear so.
The House of commons has survived the blitz, floods, fires and bombs, but a visiting group of North African illegal immigrants has traduced the place.
The original immigrant, Tineola Bisselliella, is believed to have arrived from North Africa rolled up in a magic carpet belonging to Conservative MP Michael Gove. Since he arrived a year ago, he has been breeding extensively, and despite an attempt to remove him during the parliamentary recess in 2008, MPs are still plagued by him.
Tineola Bisselliella is of course a tiny moth, and MPs have nothing better to worry about, nor waste parliamentary time asking questions about him.
