A Not So Cunning Fox

Keeping with the courteous cross-party tradition of praising whoever gives their first Commons speech, Liam Fox flattered Labour MP Alison Seabeck yesterday for her “incredibly informed maiden speech, albeit a highly political one”. One slight problem – Seabeck was elected in 2005.

Quick to respond with “that wasn’t my maiden speech” a cross Seabeck went on to remind the Secretary of State for Defence that she had spent the last Parliament lobbying hard for the Plymouth defence industry, but it seems Fox hadn’t noticed her across the benches. Perhaps the good doctor should focus more on reality rather than daydreaming about bringing down Dave.
