Prime Minister might miss crucial ID Card vote!

The Prime Minister will miss today's vote, because the pliot of the plane he was in spotted an engine problem as they prepared to take off from Pretoria, South Africa.
I wonder what the odds are that the pilot is a second cousin, once removed, of a Tory Whip, a Lib Dem activist, or a disgruntled member of the awkward squad amongst that cabal of Labour MP's.
Joking aside though, it is an important vote, and one which is vital to the government's credibility, so expectlots of whipping and a high turnout of MP's.


Well I'm sure they never expected Blair to show anyway!

That said, I think given the last fiasco he is more determined to show up at crucial votes!
