I think the Telegraph has a cheek to ask such questions. It's up to my constituents surely to decide whether they think I'm doing a good job and putting in the hours, and seeing as I have a blog and a website and am fairly often in the local media I think they're in a pretty good position to judge whether I am actually working during recess or sunning myself on a beach somewhere from July 22nd to October 12th. And of course people soon realise whether you're turning up to events or not. But -what next? Publishing our time sheets online at the end of every week? Clocking in at the beginning and end of every day? Electronic tagging?
Well, I guess it's handy that the only time we see the Commons is at PMQ's. And isn't that a vibrant, buzzing sample of how enthusiastic and committed our MP's are? It's just a pity that the rest of the time, the Commons is practically deserted. So yes, you arrogant cunt, I for one would be delighted to have each of you tagged with a GPS sensor and have you log (and have audited, weekly) timesheets to show what you do with your days, not just during the recess, but during the whole year.
Because I don't think you fuckers work nearly as hard as you claim to. Ever.
