In the Doghouse

LONDON -- Lucy led her master astray on her debut in the House of Commons, taking a Labour Party leader to the Conservative benches. "It's a Tory dog," one lawmaker shouted as the Labrador retriever guide dog went astray with David Blunkett, the Labour Party's spokesman on health. One of Blunkett's colleagues got them pointed in the right way. Blunkett has the last laugh, taking an opportunity to tweak the Conservatives for their poor showing in European assembly elections last week. "Having participated in Labour's resounding victory in the European campaign, Lucy obviously presumed we had won a general election and occupied the government benches," Blunkett said.
