In a move which confirms to the world that he is indeed a gigantic cock, Labour MP for Ealing, Acton and Shepherd's Bush Andrew Slaughter told those who criticised him for breaking Parliamentary rules to "get a life." Slaughter was discovered writing letters on his Parliamentary stationery to people who were not in his constituency, but who would join the new Hammersmith seat he intends to fight for Labour at the next election.
In many ways it comes as no surprise that Slaughter has been caught doing this. Labour MP for Lewisham East Bridget Prentice was reprimanded by Standards Chief John Lyon for doing a very similar thing last year. So Labour have history here. But it's also pretty well known that Slaughter is likely to be destroyed in the new seat by the young and talented Conservative candidate Shaun Bailey. I wonder if John Lyon would like to know just how little regard Andrew Slaughter has for Parliament's rules?
