Newly-weds William and Ffion Hague may have enjoyed a laid-back honeymoon in an Indian love palace but back in England, their subsequent plans for a happy marriage are strictly organised.

Speaking on Talk Radio, the Tory leader said: "We are going to have a real marriage. Not just one that passes as ships in the night.

"We have set ourselves an agenda to spend time together. We will spend every Sunday together, one weekend in four together and have two holidays a year."

His intention to spend a further one evening a week with his bride brings their total quality time together to 111 days a year.

This may not seem like much, but many MPs will attest to how difficult it is to snatch even a few hours with their partners.
