Where Was Sam Tarry?

London’s flooding last night hit the North particularly badly, not least in Ilford where local MP Wes Streeting and council leader Jas Athwal were out helping residents in the worst affected homes. Fresh off the heels of quelling local ‘rainbow dildo butt monkey’ anger…

Some Labour sources were quite irked at one notable no-show: Sam Tarry, MP for Ilford South. Unlike Ilford North residents who saw their MP out and about last night, all Tarry’s voters got was a quote tweet. Constituents on Facebook have had no update. Given Tarry’s shadow transport spokesperson role, co-conspirators may even have presumed the TfL chaos might have warranted a comment.

Some locals begged the question, therefore, where was Sam last night? Could it have been he was, in fact, staying in his £600,000 three-bedroom Brighton houseAdmittedly his family home may not be the best venue to avoid being in deep water

UPDATE: Tarry’s office has emailed in to claim the briefings to Guido were “completely inaccurate” and the MP did do a tour of the constituency “immediately after the torrential rain yesterday”. Very unlike Tarry not to splash his visit across social media…

The office also claims Ilford South “didn’t suffer flooding like elsewhere in Redbridge”, which is peculiar given the below scenes on Cranbrook Road yesterday – firmly within Tarry’s constituency:
