These MPs’ laughter is a perfect illustration of the state we (and Boris Johnson) are in right now

If you needed a 28-second illustration of that state we find ourselves in now, well, you’ve come to the right place.

Not that it’ll do any good, or affect any change, obviously, but the response of these MPs to paymaster general Michael Ellis did make us smile (and despair at the same time).

Nailed it (and it’s the SNP’s Carol Monaghan asking the question).

The grim punchline was that Downing Street might indeed not bother to appoint a successor to Lord Geidt, who resigned today.

And to think, the replacement was staring us in the face.
