Gordon in Commons, But Not for Constituents

The last piece of business in the House before half term tomorrow will be an Adjournment Debate by the member for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath. Dropping in for a rare ten minute speech, you might have thought the former Prime Mentalist would be standing up for his oft abandoned constituents, who don’t see very much of their wayward MP. Nope.

Gordon will be speaking in the Commons about educating Syrian refugees which, while a noble cause, is a little convenient given that he is currently fundraising under that banner. When he’s not globe-trotting as UN Envoy for Education (which essentially consists of having his photo taken with Malala a lot) Gordon is coining it on the speech circuit. His rare appearances in Parliament should be to represent the interests of his constituents rather than to wangle money out of the British government for his latest pet project. Using Parliament as a begging bowl is beneath even him.

          No. He gave it away just because he could.

          Somebody drew his attention to all this gold just sitting around and, like any kid whose been told to leave something alone he couldn’t help but meddle. Try and think of something that needed doing just so he could be seen to be doing something.

          I shall sell all the gold. That’ll show everybody how important I am.

        No. He gave it to one million slack-jawed ‘graduates’ that were the first cohort to emerge from university in 2001/2 after 3 years of ‘education, education and education’.

        Then he built them shiny new offices and quangos to sit using borrowed money. Then he borrowed the money to pay them all for the next 10 years.
