MPs Pilloried!

The Tristan community keeps up its reputation for good fun during Queen's Day as Administrator Alex Mitham, Finance Officer Chris Standing and Commercial Manager Matthew Byrne join Chief Islander Ian Lavarello to pose as novelty rockhoppers and face wet sponges thrown by many willing volunteers.

Of course Tristan doesn't have any MPs, though Ian is an elected member of the Island Council. All are good sports.
