Twentynine years ago Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote the music for a one-woman show, with lyrics by Don Black, called 'Tell Me On A Sunday' featuring Marti Webb. She had her biggest hit single with one of the songs called 'Take That Look Off Your Face'.
It occured to me that the chorus of this song has a certain resonance for those MPs returning to face their constituents and explain their actions in respect of their allowances and expenses.
'Take that look off your face,
I can see through your smile,
You would love to be right,
I bet you didn't sleep good last night,
Couldn't wait to bring all that bad news to my door,
Well, I've got news for you - I knew before.'
