Compare and contrast

June 6th, 2008 · Posted by Skuds in Politics · No Comments · Politics is a handy site for keeping an eye on what your MP is up to. I like to keep abreast of what my MP is doing and what the neighbouring constituency MP is doing. Yesterday it showed me their respective contributions:

Laura Moffatt (Crawley, Labour): an oral question to Tom Harris about railways.

Plans have been published for the £5.5 billion upgrade of the Thameslink line, which is very welcome for our constituents. How will my hon. Friend make sure that it runs to time and to cost, and that its effect on the travelling public is minimised, including the upgrade to Gatwick airport?

Francis Maude (Tory, Horsham) a written question

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many copies of the Morning Star (a) the Cabinet Office and (b) 10 Downing Street purchase each day.

Nice to see Frankie tearing himself away from his many directorships for long enough to spend a couple of hundred of my pounds getting a flunky to write a question about the things that really matter rather than actually turning up to Parliament and wasting the junior transport minister’s time with a question about transport, of all things – the long-overdue ((so overdue that the original project was called Thameslink 2000, giving a clue as to when it was expected)) improvements to the old Thameslink service that will offer a greatly improved service to both Crawley and Horsham.
