DC Comics, otherwise known as the Tory government, is trading new casual Friday t-shirts for every House of Commons members to wear.

Ad was very depressed and blamed me for it all but I persisted and blew away the blues orally, as we had no means of written communication at the time,” added the mother of us all (except Jesus).
