The constitutional role of Michael Fabricant's hair
The last time I visited the public gallery of the House of Commons was about eight years ago. The first thing I noticed in the chamber was Michael Fabricant's resplendent hair. It stood out like a beacon.
I visited the public gallery again this evening. Lo and behold, the first thing that shone into my irises was, yes, Michael Fabricant's hair again. It's still there shining out after all these years.
It's a bit like the light at the top of Big Ben tower which only shines when parliament is sitting.
