This week's best political tweets in one handy location.
Wife of the speaker Sally Bercow sums up the summer recess:
@SallyBercow - Love August. You can stick on an 'Out of Office' email all month long and no one bats an eyelid :) #anyexcusenottodoadmin
A new hackgate arrest sends Twitter into overdrive:
@laurenlaverne - Trying to work out who the new #Hackgate arrest is. Bit worried it might be Santa :( How *else* could he know if you've been naughty/nice?
@benjyhall - Most depressing thing about #hackgate? I would probably make a great private investigator but there must be less demand for them now.
The sentencing of Rupert Murdoch's shaving foam pie attacker Jonnie Marbles leads to copious pie jokes:
@guidofawkes - Tough on pie, tough on the causes of pie. @JonnieMarbLes gets six weeks.
@martincollins - @JonnieMarbLes Should have been 3.14159..............
@mShapland - @JonnieMarbLes must be foaming at the mouth... Not so Pie-ous now eh? #piegate
Heather Mills' allegations of phone-hacking at the Mirror group puts the spotlight on former Mirror editor Piers Morgan:
@tim_mytweets - If they summon Piers Morgan to the Commons about #hackgate the MPs could have X's above them that they can buzz if they don't believe him
@BenHarvell - #hackgate got serious when innocents were affected and investigations were hampered. Now Heather Mills drags it back to quasi-celeb moans
@piersmorgan - So heart-warming that everyone in UK's missing me so much they want me to come home. #swoon
Seventy six year old MP Paul Flynn announces that all MPs have sexual magnetism in his book How to be a Backbencher:
@Lord_Credo - If Paul Flynn is sexually attractive to women, I will hand wash Rod Liddle's pants for a month.
Blogger Guido Fawkes' reinstate the death penalty e-petition spurs debate:
@dnwx - The death penalty would be no good in England. We're rubbish at penalties... #DP #DeathPenalty
@Andrew_Keenan - Death penalty: supported by people who think that tax is an infringement of personal liberty, but being put to death isn't. #restore
@EdJ_C - The death penalty acts as a great deterrent in the US where crime is virtually unknown. #restore
@sunny_hundal – Best way to kill the Sun's campaign for death penalty? Call for people who hack phones of dead children also be eligible for it.
@KristoferKeane – ERROR 404: SUPPORT FOR CAPITAL PUNISHMENT NOT FOUND
@Old_Holborn - Ok, I give in. Bring back the death penalty for the 352 MPs who fiddled their expenses. #restore
Culture, media and sport select committee member Louise Mensch gives her views on the phone-hacking scandal:
@LouiseMensch - I'm not interested in "getting" anyone at this stage. Be healthier for the UK if papers and editors came clean about the past...
@LouiseMensch - ...we established a regulator with teeth (a much beefed up PCC), a compensation fund was set up for victims...
@LouiseMensch - ...and our free press could start with a clean slate and new respect from the public. That's what I want as a politican.
And then flirts with Piers Morgan, who she clashed with last week:
@LouiseMensch - @piersmorgan you do make me smile #trueconfessions
@piersmorgan – Bet that's just the half of it
@mk1969 - @piersmorgan PaddyPower offering 6/4 on you and @louisemensch announcing engagement in 2013.
