Big Brother watches Labour MPs

During PMQs John Heppell was sitting in the upper-gallery with what looked like a list of Labour MPs.

It seemed as though he was checking the Government benches to see who was there, before marking them off with a blue highlighter.

It may be that the former whip, Nottingham East MP, has been pulled back into doing some work for Labour Chief Whip Nick Brown.

Either way, it comes on a day when the Government will face an opposition motion calling for a general election.

Perhaps the Government aren’t quite so confident they’ll get the numbers in to vote against it?

UPDATE 11/6/09: It's confirmed that Heppell is back in the whips' office after two years in the wilderness.
