MPs dole out the pork, literally

  1. I miss Megan Leslie.

  2. The Hottie Quotient in this gallery is back up to par. Good work.

    • yeah, it’s always disappointing when Capital Diary is just old MPs and not hot staffers.

  3. Justin eats meat!!!! – I would have swore that he was a strict type vegetarian or at the least an ova-lacto-vegetarian! I refuse to stoop so low that I would even attempt a current comment on the first 2 pictures.
