WHILE MPs are reportedly behaving like untrained squaddies, let me drill them as such: ‘Attention!

By the centre quick march.

Left right! left right!

About turn!

Keep your dressing now.

Keep your dressing!’ The dressing is by ‘the centre’ to whom the Left and the Right have to fall into line.

Pity, isn’t it, that few of the MPs today will have done National Service and learned this basic lesson of how to work together on the parade ground.
