Obviously when you get engaged the jokes start coming in thick and fast and so it is that Mars Hill contributor Stephen Glenn pointed out that there may be a tradition for politicos that they invite the MP for the area where the politico couple were in when the question was popped. I mention this and of course Paul Linford suggests it can be a Blog Meme so here it is:
Where were you when the question was asked/you were asked the question?
St Kenelm's Church, Church Enstone
Who is/was the MP for the area?
David Cameron, Conservative MP for Witney and Prime Minister
What role would you give/have given MP at wedding/civil partnership?
Would there be terms and conditions to such an invite?
Yes, Ed Miliband comes along as well
Would the MP be mentioned/have been mentioned in the speeches?
Very likely. The rule would be politeness, but criticism of the govts policies would prevail, albeit in light-hearted banter
