I'm a better parent than the British PM

Heard a lovely headline today that said that David Cameron (British PM), his wife,their children and some friends went out for a companionable lunch at a pub over the weekend.  All sound v nice.  At the end of the lunch the Cameron family piled in the car- presumably overseen by the security staff and drivers that would have been an unmentioned entourage, went back to Country house.  Got there and oops where is Nancy?  Discovered 8 year old had been left in pub.

Pretty sure I never left any of you in a pub.  Well not when you were 8 anyway!

Also heard today that Mark is definitely 1 in 1,000,000.  There are a million NZers living overseas.  Mark is officially one in a million.  Adrian will become 2 in a million (or will it be 2 in 1,000,001?   Which would make him 1 in the second million).  Only Ireland and Luxembourg from OECD have a greater proportion of their population living overseas.  Though even as I type this I think most Pacific nations have more people living in NZthan in the native island butI guess they aren't OECD.
