Last word on whipping for tonight

I haven’t ever seen or read House of Cards, but it’s now on my ‘must do’ list so I can learn just when it’s appropriate to push fellow politicians off the top of tall buildings and when I should resort to other, less draconian methods.
I’ve also been advised to get hold of a copy of Gyles Brandeth’s book on his time as an MP and whip. Apparently it was common practice in the Tory Whips’ office to start the morning meeting with a glass of champagne! I can categorically confirm that it doesn’t happen in the Labour ranks.
