Are the liaison committee members at Lord’s?

Lunch at the cricket and our team have a full house watching.  For Brown, at the Commons liaison committee, it was anything but full.  Andres Sparrow describes the scene:

I have to say, it's not exactly a sell-out. We're in the Boothroyd Room in Portcullis House, which has room for about 70 members of the public. There are only about 20 people.


There are 33 members of the committee. In the past most of them have turned up. But today only 16 members – fewer than 50% – turned up. I don't know why, but it may be that committee members are becoming sceptical of the value of these hearings. Or it might be that, with Brown seen as being on his way out, he doesn't matter to them as much as he used to. Maybe David Cameron should offer to do a turn?

Sparrow is spot on, Brown is on the way out.

I assume there is no truth in the rumour that the other 50% of the liaison committee are at Lord’s.  On this occasion, us taxpayers would say they made the right decision.
