    I thought I'd post the following because I think it's a delightful little anecdote about HMQ from one of the best-delivered speeches I've heard from an MP (Mrs May):

    "Her Majesty loved the countryside. She was down to earth and a woman of common sense. I remember one picnic at Balmoral that was taking place in one of the bothies on the estate. The hampers came from the castle, and we all mucked in to put the food and drink out on the table. I picked up some cheese, put it on a plate and was transferring it to the table. The cheese fell on the floor.

    I had a split-second decision to make...

    I picked up the cheese, put it on a plate and put the plate on the table.

    I turned round to see that my every move had been watched very carefully by Her Majesty the Queen.

    I looked at her, she looked at me... and she just smiled.

    And the cheese remained on the table." (12.47pm)
