Another 2010 Tory Woman Quits

Rent-swapper extraordinaire Jessica Lee is standing down in 2015. Guido’s main recollection of her glittering parliamentary career is revealing her household takes home £34,000-a-year in rent expenses. With a majority of just 2,501, Lee is quitting while she is ahead. Adding her name to those of Louise Mensch, Lorraine Fulbrook and Laura Sandys…

        Sterio,haven’t you yet realised that the only stress experienced by our elected representatives is working out how to get rich from robbing the trough & trying to ensure they are not caught out & exposed to the public?

          Indeed it is a strange kind of ‘stress’ your representatives suffer as it is really fear (not enough) of getting caught and then if they do using this catch all to delay even the feeble justice that awaits them. Like I say no one is really that bothered it’s easier to let it carry on then to do what is needed because what is needed is violent and unpleasant. Perhaps one day when you tire of them pissing in you face and laughing?

    Interesting.

    Why is Lorraine Fullbrook standing down? As far as I can tell, she seldom says anything in the House and I’ve never seen her when watching PMQs on the Beeb. What’s her overt reason? She seemed dreadfully keen before she won her seat.

      The most amusing claim ever says:

      Labour MP after Labour MP kept getting on their feet and telling Harper that it was “clearly” the will of the house that the government accept Syrian Refugees ???. Considering hardly anybody was in the House and that it was mainly about 15 Labour MPs asking I can’t see how that constitutes the majority of the house…c’mon lads/lassies THIS isn’t postal voting you know

      Harper kept his cool throughout and just kept repeating that the UK was the second largest donor in the World after the USA of humanitarian aid(£600 million)and had given more(until recently when Germany chipped in)than the rest of 28 EU member states combined and in response to question from Edward Lee confirmed that France had coughed up just £25 million and was accepting 50 refugees whilst we had already accepted 1100. Obviously Cooper and Labour felt we should have accepted nearer 1,100.000
