Labour quickly went on the attack when Nadine flew to the jungle. Chris Bryant went as far as suggesting a by-election for missing recess. So what do they recommend for their own parliament dodger?
In 2012 Nadine has spoken in thirty debates in the Commons, comfortably above average. How many has the former Prime Mentalist piped up in? Just one. The jungle-venturing scourge of the posh boys has received answers to some sixty written questions over the last twelve months, compared with a paltry eight for Gordon. And how do the pair fare in terms of vote attendance? Nadine has had her say in 71% of votes during the last year, with Brown bothering to turn up to just 14%.
Sampling kangaroo testicles will controversially land Nadine £40,000, which pales into significance when you think McMental’s sucking up to foreign dignitaries has clocked up £1.4 million.
Two wrongs dont make a right, but spare us the lectures. If Labour are serious about MPs doing their job, perhaps they should remove the whip from Gordon…
