This is "women's week" at LSE so a number of LSE students were shadowing female MPs today. I had a delightful young woman called Frances who seemed to have enjoyed herself but I was a little uneasy as I had to desert her on a couple of occasions for meetings about the manifesto. Luckily she didn't seem to mind as there is always something going on here as an alternative sideshow.

I did explain to her that she wouldn't have an entirely accurate picture of a typical day as most days I spend some time on the laptop but I didn't think it was a good use of her time to watch me typing away.
