Mrs Tiz showed me an ad for an advent calendar where each box had a tiny bottle of gin! A mere £100 price tag. :surprised:

Why I mentioned that Turner is a Labour supporter is that she's having to criticise a Labour MP; she's not a Tory having a go at a Labour MP. In other words, me trying to point out that it's not politically driven.
