Eric meets Eric

It finally happened.

Do you remember the story of Eric Pickles' Holiday. No, well refresh your memory and look here for my story about this with an exclusive interview with Eric Pickles himself. Since then more photos of Eric's road trip have gone up on . Here are some  of my favourites.

Choo Choo.

Eric finally made it to Las Vegas, and he loved it.

Flying home.

Put it all on black.

Anyway Eric made it back from America and the real Eric finally met his look a like in Parliament. How you may ask? well let Daniel tell you. He said exclusively to #ThingsElliottSays "I was just going to a dinner in London with a couple of MPs and my friend originally but then we decided to invite Eric. Amazingly he said yes. We were in Parliament as the MPs said it would be good to have a few drinks on the terrace before dinner. Coincidentally, just as we were leaving to meet Eric at the restaurant, we bumped into him as he was leaving Westminster to meet us. One of the first things he said was "let's get a picture with him then". Eric said he found it very funny and his favourite picture was the one of him in the car in LA. He said he had a lot of people ask him about it."

The LA car photo.

Eric Pickles also said of the occasion "I found it very funny ... I was even going to wear the same tie". Eric Pickles is one of the best members of this government so he better keep up the good work. Also much thanks to James and Daniel for the little bit of fun their holiday brought to us. Long live the Pickles cut out.
