Just when you thought it was safe to switch on the television, news arrives that Lembit Opik MP is to appear on the Jerry Springer Show. He is to join Nigel Evans MP and Stephen Pound MP on Thursday 5 February on a specially recorded show for Cancer Relief. We wait with baited breath for the revelations that will follow, neatly encapsulated in tasteful purple on a caption at the bottom of the screen. His diary, which is e-mailed out to all and sundry each week also reveals that Lembit will be spending Saturday night as the guest speaker at the Powys Grassland Society Dinner in Welshpool. Despite the fact that this event follows so soon after the reclassification of cannabis Lembit's staff assure me that the dinner is not related to that sort of grass.
