Mick bites his tongue.

So, Mr Smith reads that the Speaker of the House of Commons, Michael Martin MP, aka "Gorbals Mick," is to opening a new £7.7 million Press Gallery (their logo left) in the Commons for the members of the press.

"Michael Martin, the Commons Speaker, might have to choose his words carefully next month when he officially opens the refurbished press accommodation at the House of Commons."

The irony isn't lost on Mr Smith given Mick's frosty encounters with the press over a number of years, but who knows they might just be able to bury the hatchet from this point onwards. The attraction for Mick was presumably having a plaque on the wall of the Press Gallery in perpetuity saying he had opened it.
