Tory MP Accused of Rigging Election

With South East Cornwall devastated by the floods, you might think their MP Sheryll Murray would drop everything to help her constituents in their hour of need. In fact, Murray has been hit by a wave of criticism from drenched locals for spending her time tweeting about her cat while their homes were being destroyed:

Sheryll must be feline confident her cat Bosun can win the Purr Minister election, a charity vote to find the prettiest Westminster pussy. The claws are out with an furrocious cat fight kicking off between Murray and hiss-terical Labour rival Lyn Brown the MP for West Ham, who is accusing Murray of using a voting bot after tens of thousands of Australians votes were cast overnight. Cheetah Bosun has already milked 10,000 more votes than last year, with 30,000 overall coming from Australia. Meaning she’s more than a whisker ahead. Good to see Sheryll has her priorities right while her paw constituents are under water…
