Gordon and his honourable friend

Mandrake reports on a possible embarrassing beginning to PMQs this week:

Gordon Brown’s smile may be even more strained than usual on Wednesday when, at Prime Minister’s Questions at noon, the MP listed to quiz him first is none other than Jim Devine.

Embarrassingly, this is the Labour MP for Livingston who faces criminal prosecution for alleged false accounting. A spokesman for the Prime Minister declined to be drawn on whether Brown intends to employ the usual convention when addressing Devine, ie. “my honourable friend.”
