The Losers Saga

While much focus has been what the ousted Labour and Liberal lobby fodder is up to, spare a moment for the only two former Tory MPs who lost their should – be – safe seats. Predictably the sound of the revolving door is never far away…

As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
