Peterborough MP’s Speedy Justice

Paul Bristow, MP for Peterborough, has been given a 28-day driving ban after admitting to speeding. The MP took his punishment after, to his credit, having asked to be banned to avoid “hypocrisy”. Bristow was caught doing 76 mph in a 50 zone, and admitted to the incident in his Peterborough Telegraph column, saying he had to do so in order to retain credibility. It was Bristow’s third offence in two years, and along with the ban was ordered to pay £667, a victim surcharge of £68, and £110 costs. What is it about Peterborough’s MPs and speed limits?

Paul Bristow: Mustard King

New intake MP Paul Bristow isn’t resting on his nickname laurels after being dubbed Parliament’s most eminent wrestling MP. Like most members he recently celebrated National Farming Day, saying one farmer in his constituency told him Peterborough grows “some of the finest mustard seeds in the whole country”, and as such Bristow can call himself “The Mustard King” – an alias he has now embraced. Guido even hears Bristow’s whip is addressing him thus, signing off one recent chat with “all hail the mustard king”. Guido says he hears – it could be an unreliable sauce…
