The Division Bell Mystery - Ellen Wilkinson

Lady Bell-Clinton pulled a face at Robert as he opened the door for the retreat of the ladies. It was tiresome to have to go and be a lady in the drawing-room when she wanted to be an M.P. and remain for the talk. The House of Commons unfits a woman M.P. for the smaller observances of the social routine that is prescribed for the Lady Bell-Clintons.


I vote all the women MPs should have a houseparty with only one male MP and so he's left on his own when the ladies leave and talk business.
