*rushes through front door*

Ed, you've made dinner, haven't you? Did Andy turn up?

*Rushes around, trying to find tie*

Uh... don't know. You chatted to him in the House, love. what did he say?

Shit, good thing we live so close to Westminster. Fucking three line whips. If you were still Foreign Sec, you could've paired with Hague and I could've smashed George Osborne's face in so he couldn't go.

Look, dinner's cooked - and the spare's made up...

Wait. Fuck, where are the kids?
Yvettecoopertrooper on October 24th, 2011 07:35 pm (UTC)
Gah, they're still with my mother... I'll go and pick them up. Thanks for sorting everything out, love.

Andy said he'd come. He will come.
Ed Balls MP: resonable manontheballscity on October 24th, 2011 07:37 pm (UTC)
*bites lip*

Look, what if he doesn't? Do we go kidnap him out of the No lobby?
Yvettecoopertrooper on October 24th, 2011 07:41 pm (UTC)
*facepalms*

We'll have to go back to vote too. We'll catch him then - he'll hang around until it's all over.

Alright. Kids are staying at Mum's, then.

*knocks*
Yvette: shouty yvettecoopertrooper on October 24th, 2011 07:42 pm (UTC)
*opens*

Andy! Come in.

I thought you'd stay at parliament until the votes were over, but by the looks of things you'd have been there all night...
killandburnhamkillandburnham on October 24th, 2011 07:44 pm (UTC)
I gave up. I didn't know if you were expecting me or whatever. This is still alright, isn't it?
Ed Balls MP: Fuckin' Brilliantontheballscity on October 24th, 2011 07:45 pm (UTC)
Of course, mate.

Uh... do you want a drink? I mean, we won't get Reckless-legless, but you need at least a shot in yer if you want not to throw up at the idea of being whipped through the same door as Tories.
killandburnhamkillandburnham on October 24th, 2011 07:48 pm (UTC)
Go on then, just one. Entertaining as the idea of actually throwing up on them is.
Yvettecoopertrooper on October 24th, 2011 07:48 pm (UTC)
*steers Andy to sofa*

Of course we were expecting you. Ed's made dinner. Better eat before we have to go back.
killandburnhamkillandburnham on October 24th, 2011 07:50 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I'm not really...I mean, I'll eat a bit, but -

You don't need to look after me, you know.
Yvette: disapproving yvettecoopertrooper on October 24th, 2011 07:51 pm (UTC)
You're our guest. You have to have dinner.
killandburnhamkillandburnham on October 24th, 2011 07:52 pm (UTC)
Right. Yeah, sorry. I'm just sort of...out of the habit.

How are you?
Yvettecoopertrooper on October 24th, 2011 08:03 pm (UTC)
Fine, I think. Busy, as always.

How was your weekend?
Ed Balls MP: cooking is greatontheballscity on October 24th, 2011 07:51 pm (UTC)
Mate, who else will if we don't?

*Drops heavy lumps of buttery mash on three plates*

*Pours gravy on two plates*

*Cuts chunks of meat*

Veg? Carrots or beans or... uh, I think that's corn. ...wait, could be the kid's hamster. Shit, not again.
killandburnhamkillandburnham on October 24th, 2011 07:53 pm (UTC)
Thanks. Really. You don't need to rub it in.

Veg is good. Hamster, less so.

*checks hamster cage*

...Hamster's escaped again.

He could still be around -

Either way, there'd better be one in here before Joe gets back.

*Walks back in*

Right, hamster's defrosting in the sink.

*nervously notices the tense silence*

...Look, should we put Parliament on? Would be good to have a few minutes warning before we have to bolt to satisfy the whips.

killandburnhamkillandburnham on October 24th, 2011 08:40 pm (UTC)
Oh God, you haven't given it mouth-to-mouth, have you?

And you say I'm a workaholic. Put it on if you want. Quietly, though, or I'll just get angry.
Yvettecoopertrooper on October 24th, 2011 08:43 pm (UTC)
*switches TV on*

At least we might get an idea of how long this is going to drag on for.
Ed Balls MP: resonable manontheballscity on October 24th, 2011 08:47 pm (UTC)
*grumbles* fucking Euroskeptic wankers

So, uh.

How's - how's stuff? Andy?

Shit, I've kissed both the people on this sofa. Maybe this is what pimps feel like.
killandburnhamkillandburnham on October 24th, 2011 08:50 pm (UTC)
Fuckers, I hate them.

I'm alright. You know, nothing changes. Just getting on with it. Trying not to murder Lansley. Or to murder him. I'm not quite sure.

This is the most awkward thing I've ever experienced. And I once walked in on Gordon practicing being friendly and approachable in the mirror.
Ed Balls MP: Oh shi-ontheballscity on October 24th, 2011 08:56 pm (UTC)
...Shit - bolt.

Grab your coats. We've got five minutes to get to Westminster.
killandburnhamkillandburnham on October 24th, 2011 08:59 pm (UTC)
Thank fuck for that.
Ed Balls MP: Aweontheballscity on October 24th, 2011 09:23 pm (UTC)
*Walks outside Westminster with Yvette and Andy, laughing*

Shit, haven't seen a rebellion that bad since Thatcher. Mental.

Uh, so. Home then?

Fuck, this is so bad. Why did I think this would work?
