Good work Lembit

Lembit Öpik was just on the Today programme, talking about the news that MPs can now jump the queue for all sorts of House of Commons facilities, including lifts, telephones, shops and restaurants.

He was punchy, confident and - dare I say it - rather charming. He made some good jokes: particularly "the 'do you know who I am' brigade" and "having to wait two years for a General Election when we can't wait 2 minutes for dinner."

Lembit is seen as something of a comedy character sometimes, but this was a top-class performance - well done.

I'm delighted that Lembit has grasped the bull by the horns and immediately put the Liberal Democrats on the right side of this issue. This story is bound to reinforce the public's perception of MPs as arrogant, self-important, and contemptuous of the ordinary people who after all pay for Parliament to exist - it's important that they don't include Liberal Democrat MPs in that perception!

Lembit has introduced an EDM on this matter (hat-tip Iain Dale) - I suggest you all urge your MPs to sign it.

UPDATE: On the BBC News website now.
