DOZY politicians looking for self-help have been borrowing a book from the House of Commons library called How To Be An MP.
The tome was borrowed three times in the last six months from the library and was taken out six times in 2017.
The book is by the late Labour MP Paul Flynn, who died last year.
It says: Here is a guide for anyone and everyone fascinated by the quirks and foibles of Westminster Palace, covering all species of backbencher and providing every hardworking MP and political enthusiast with the know-how to survive life in Parliament.
From how to address the crowd, weather marital troubles and socialise at party conference to the all important Backbenchers Commandments, How to Be an MP is indispensable reading for anyone wishing to make a mark from the back bench and influence proceedings in the House.
And in the process it provides the outsider with a riveting insight into life as a Member.
Before the election eager MPs also requested that another book People Get Ready! Preparing For A Corbyn Government be added to the Commons library.
