It was a grey, bleak, icy, hailing, thunderstormy, windswept, wet day as we headed off on the "Tube" for a visit to Westminster........... It took just an hour to travel from the wilderness of Epping, northeast of London to our destination of Westminster.....right in the heart of "Yes Minister" country.
