WHEN one of the local MPs tweets a picture of herself with her arm in a sling, it’s natural to ask: Oof, what happened to you then? The answer to that question from Islington South’s Emily Thornberry yesterday sounded like a bit of a long story… but the Shadow Attorney General seems to have lost a fight with ‘heavy duty plastic packaging’. It happens to us all. Get well soon.
