Want to see some of Britain’s most serious Lords, MPs and political correspondents don chefs hats, aprons and showcase their pancake-flipping skills or lack thereof? Then get ready for the Rehab Parliamentary Pancake Race, which takes place at 10.15 on Shrove Tuesday (12th February in 2013) in Victoria Tower Gardens outside the Houses of Parliament. The relay race supports the charity Rehab, which helps people with disabilities to become more active and independent. Taking part this year are Tracey Crouch MP, ITN’s Tom Bradby, BBC’s Nick Robinson and more.
