Nothing snide about pointing out someone being paid for a full time job and only doing it part time. Just show the contempt he holds for his constituents. 50 hours a month is getting on for 25% of his time. Disgraceful.

Shows that you could put a blue rosette on a hat stand and it would get in, in some parts of the country ..
What a disgraceful thing to say. Typical "running dog" stuff with those who are so falsely sanctimonious without knowing the people being criticised.

I can only speak to JR in this context; he is a very diligent constituency MP, His voting record in Parliament is high; he asks questions and makes speeches/interventions.

As to your stupid "hat stand" remark, even you know that's nonsense.

Sunak is the one people keep mentioning but that's because he was paying loads of people's wages for nearly two years. His popularity will decline as that becomes history and tax raises are met with the infrastructure cuts his Government are pushing at the same time. The tax rise has already made it a bit more difficult for him amongst the Tory base.
Gove is an intellectual and political heavyweight. But I fear he's been too involved in Brexit so would be less credible when setting out an agenda to solve its problems.

That's an easy one. Ditch the 'deal'. The disadvantages seem to be outweighing the advantages.

Some people are good at multi-tasking and selecting a good team to assist.

The thing I take most from Deadwood, Cox and the rest of their ilk is that being an MP isn't a real job and that's pretty sad really, I mean how can it be a real job and you serve your constituents interests when you can jet of for weeks on end or devote a quarter of your time to other peoples interests

Gove should be the poster boy for the Conservative party considering his upbringing, the fact he isn't says more about his character than the party

You are spot on. You & I would not be able to do this in our jobs so why the special treatment for them? Imagine if a prospective MP stood up at a hustings and said "if you vote for me, I will dedicate a full 75% of my time to this constituency"

Just think how good he would be if he did his job full time.

There's something really wrong with your thinking.

You don't know JR; I've known him for 25 years. This thread has the benefit of two of JR's constituents who have explained why he is a highly respected MP in Wokingham.

Do you think MP's should work full-time or part-time when they are elected? It's a simple question

Sorry, two Conservative supporting constituents think it is ok for a Conservative MP to work part time is validation? I think not ..

Answer this question please: if he was in any other job, would he be allowed to work part-time when he was recruited as a full time employee?

Re: Has the 'Peppa Pig' Prime Minister lost the plot or is this just a hiccup?

MP's are not full time employees.

Quote:
Members of Parliament are Office holders and are not employees of the
House of Commons. There is no statutory job description for MPs. The
Code of Conduct for Members of Parliament provides assistance. The
purpose of the Code is "to assist Members in the discharge of their
obligations to the House, their constituents and the public at large".

John Redwood has nothing to do with you. I wouldn't support nor vote for him if he didn't provide me with the representational service that I expect. That, and only that, validates his status. OB has likewise validated.

JR has a 91% voting attendance in voting since December 2019.

You don't know what you're talking about; not now and never did over Brexit because you don't understand the fundamentals of British democracy (i.e. the Referendum result).

You won, get over it. Let's not dwell in the past, eh? The name calling is beneath you. Let's focus instead on the train wreck this country is fast becoming. You seem content to accept what the Tories are doing to this country and the direction they are taking it, I am not. It is a simple decision to make.

You hide behind the "fundamentals of British democracy" when this Government is literally, as we speak, dismantling it.

I never said he was.

Let me ask you this question, the one that people are struggling to answer:

I'm no fan of Boris. This country is badly governed at the moment. Read my past posts.

The question? I've already answered that question. I'm satisfied with JR and don't question his evening activities.
