Come to your own conclusions

My local MP is Brian Donohoe (Lab - Ayrshire Central) was fulminating, in the local press, recently agaist the proposed Edinburgh & Glasgow airport rail links and also against the new Borders rail line.

This is from a man (remember he's a Labour MP) who drives around the constituency in a 4 litre Daimler with personalised number plates. He is also an avid user of BA flights to get to and from Westminster when the Caledonian sleeper service would seem a greener option. His other claim to fame is setting up the all party group on Coronation Street.

Nuff said methinks.

And just what's wrong with Coronation Street, I ask you?

Nothing wrong with Corrie at all. Wish I had more time to enjoy it and other tv programmes.

If you are an MP whose Consituency has way above average levels of unemployment and social deprivation, 420 constituents who had their jobs torn away even though their factories were profit making and many other pressing issues, would you be using prescious time in starting a cross party group on Coronation Street?

I certainly wouldn't and I suspect that you wouldn't find any Lib Dem MPs doing so.
