Next Sitting Friday

Next sitting Friday is a term used in British politics to denote the next Friday during which the House of Commons "sits" - that is, hold debates and meetings. The term was needed as the House of Commons does not "sit" every Friday.

Famous quotes containing the words friday and/or sitting:

    The dripping blood our only drink,
    The bloody flesh our only food:
    In spite of which we like to think
    That we are sound, substantial flesh and blood—
    Again, in spite of that, we call this Friday good.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    By sitting dressed like this, in rooms like these,
    Saying I can’t guess what just fancy, when
    They could be really drinking, or in bed....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
