    Upset Wholly predictable event that takes place in a constituency far enough away from London that the media haven't seen it coming.

    Wales Likely source of upsets (see above).

    :rofl:

    Anyway, a couple of my (sleep-deprived) contributions:

    Time for reflection Forthcoming leadership contest after a landslide defeat.

    First Secretary of State Puppetmaster.

    Envelope-stuffers Politically correct term for the blue rinse brigade (maybe this only works in the Conservatives)

    MP MEP MLA Postnominal designation for a rich Ulsterman.

    Business Secretary The proper title for a politically unacceptable Chancellor of the Exchequer.
