Chatham and Aylesford MP and Minister for Sport, Tracey Crouch, was recently guest of honour at a lunch hosted by a nearby Conservative Association. After the pudding had been cleared away and coffee served, Tracey started to deliver her speech. Half way through there was a loud and unpleasant thud - one of the guests had collapsed and landed on the floor underneath his table.
Undeterred and without hesitation, Tracey sprang into action - removing her jacket and crawling under the table to administer first aid whilst someone called an ambulance. Our poor chap was taken off to hospital but thankfully made a full recovery and is now back home.
Was it too much sherry in the trifle or the thought of Tracey in her football kit? Whatever the reason I have a horrible feeling that now our older male members know that collapsing at a lunch might result in Tracey stripping off to administer CPR under the table might start a trend.
