This was probably the best of the afternoon – a perfectly pitched piece of rhetoric underpinned with a fiery passion. Just excellent.

This is the guy who obsesses over the colour of folders used for his papers in court.

Poor avocado! A witty, lively and humorous presentation on a matter of serious concern. Well done Mr Fordham!

Avocado: a useful analogy. Ministers are unlikely to be satisfied even if they get this package through.
