The Last Supper at Number Ten

Eagle eyed viewers of the programme Masterchef will have had a treat last night when the programme relocated to 10 Downing Street. The trainee chefs had to cook a meal for the Prime Minister and Bertie Ahern and six advisers. The more anoraky among you will have taken great delight in spotting Ruth Turner and Jonathan Powell sitting down at the table to break bread together. It reminded me of a scene from The Last Supper... All that was missing was Inspector Yates playing the wine waiter. A pity really as he could have used the opportunity to lace the wine with truth serum...

Which one would be Judas?
Oh, hang on, John McTernan's in Scotland, isn't he...?

Iain: your silence on the fiasco in North Norfolk. [Holt]is truly thunderous! Surely a "rebellion" of this nature and magnitude warrants a dignified outburst. Even for Tory minded persons!

How true. I wonder if anyone dared to check whether the the chefs had widdled in the soup?

Jowell getting slated in HOC, she just lies and avoids questions with impunity. well done the speaker!

theyve stolen another 600m from teh lottery and still wont put a final budget on the table

Somebody pass the pretzels.

p.s. Jowell still at it - anything tricky and she tries to make out the questioner is against the Olympics.

NO, YOU DAFT BAT, THEY ARE JUST AGAINST A CORRUPT SHAMBLES MANAGED BY AN INCOMPETENT NUMPTY LIKE YOU!

The Honourable Member for Vauxhall (Hoey, Lab) did pop that balloon, but it seems the rancid harridan has plenty more and infinite hot air with which to inflate them. I might not agree with everything KH says, but on that point I am in agreement.

Watch the Jowell statement in the house about Olympics bill. it proves conclusively;

Any party standing on a platform of cancelling the Olympics would win by a landslide

There was wilful deceit on teh part of the government

Tessa Jowell wouldnt know the truth if it bit her on the arse shouting "im the truth you cow"

Her scandalous performance confirms everything you thought about her in the wake of the casinos and Mills scandals and her criticism of Yates investigation.

She needs to know that she will be reunited with her husband, but at the pleasure of Her Majesty. She cannot get away with this fraud.

Will Gordon Brown be appearing as Judas?

Truth serum - now there's a thought, especially considering the fact that the police investigating the cash for honours allegations have, according to the BBC, said it is "unrealistic" to set a deadline for completion. Now why am I not surprised to hear that? They added that "linked offences" were now part of the inquiry.

Not sure about truth serum , I would however , have just been happy to wipe my knob around the rim of every glass before standing back and watching that gallery of grotesques enjoying their wine.

It is indeed a good job that Cherie was not present at said meal. It would have been a mammoth task to try to fill those greedy, fat thighs of hers...

I could be missing something crucial here. It is giving me schizophrenic episodes.

Are you giving these particular posters preferencial rights?
