Hectoring Hodge Dodges Parliament

Margaret Hodge rightly criticises parliament’s long recesses today and accuses MPs of not working hard:

‘Members of the public would be forgiven for thinking that it is MPs who are lazy and that it is Parliament that is failing to provide good value for money.’

Yet, like with so many of her other headline grabbing wheezes, she fails to practice what she preaches. So, does she show up much herself, when the House is sitting? It would appear not from the data:

Has spoken in 9 debates in the last year:
– well below average amongst MPs.

Has received answers to 1 written question in the last year:
well below average amongst MPs.

Has voted in 60.86% of votes in this Parliament with this affiliation:
-well below average amongst MPs.

Below average “value for money”…
