EøehZ ij­eff[Z in his tracks

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

TUBE de­lays can send awry the best laid plans, and no one knows this bet­ter than Matthew Of­ford, MP for Hen­don.

The politi­cian was en route to West­min­ster on Wed­nes­day to hold a de­bate on “Iran’s in­flu­ence in the Mid­dle East” but was cru­elly fore­stalled by the North­ern Line. While fel­low Con­ser­va­tive MPs tried to con­vince the com­mit­tee chair to de­lay pro­ceed­ings be­yond 9.31am, their pleas were re­jected as “out of or­der”.

Surely Iran’s in­flu­ence couldn’t pos­si­bly stretch from the Mid­dle East to Edg­ware via Char­ing Cross?
