Boris Johnson Expected to Make New Pencil Case Decision This Week


The Prime Minister is spending this week making the important new pencil case decision ready for when the house returns in September. Traditionally the choice of a new pencil case can bring admiration or jeers from one’s fellow MPs. Choices live long in the memory, and can be an indication of what MPs have been up to in the summer holidays, like the year when Corbyn was really into allotments and got one shaped like a carrot.
During her career Mrs Thatcher notably had a NASA one which was very cool because it was from a friend in America and one shaped like a carton of chocolate milkshake. Theresa May’s most remembered pencil cases were one shaped like a baseball boot with a real lace in it and a sequin one you could rub and the blue sequins would change to bronze. Last year Jacob Rees-Mogg was the talk of the Commons when he turned up with a pencil case shaped like a lute.
The Government’s chief stationery advisor has suggested Boris get a plain blue one but changed his mind when Boris said it was a tabula rasa for writing ‘Keir is an oaf on and Boris hearts Carrie’. The PM is thought to be considering one shaped like a bus or a snake print one.
