Mamma Mia.

From the Herald Diary, "WHAT do politicians do on their lengthy summer holidays, a reader asks. Well, if you are Glasgow Labour MP Tom Harris, you go to the pictures - but the blockbuster Mamma Mia!, it seems, was not to his liking. As Tom writes on his website: "Do yourself a favour: if you haven't already seen this movie, don't. Instead, go out and buy Abba's greatest hits CD, and have a sing and a dance in the privacy of your own home, in the sure and certain knowledge that, however embarrassed you may feel, you'll be turning in a more entertaining performance than the cast of Mamma Mia!" Somehow the thought of MPs dancing around in their living rooms to Abba is one to be quickly expunged." Maybe he should just stick to reading books on his holidays?
