Ironic that someone who has just left a cabinet position to be directly affected by one of the problems his government constantly failed to fix - knife crime, remember the slogan "tough on crime - tough on the causes of crime"

Acting Labour leader Harriet Harman commented: "One of the great strengths of the British political system is the everyday accessibility of MPs to their constituents but we can't have a situation where MPs are at risk.

"Parliament needs to consider how best to ensure MPs can carry out their responsibilities safely."
Because no other job carries a risk of getting knifed by a fruitcake.

Oh dear, how sad, never mind, I'm sure the CPS will pursue this with as much vigour and determination as they would for anyone else.

Just looked quickly at his record. TBH he seems like a decent MP. Aprox 600th lowest expense claims and managed a swing from the Conservatives this election to get 70% of the vote.

It's that sort of thinking that makes me so glad Labour have gone.

He may not have stolen our money, but that doesn't make him a good MP. His membership of Labour makes him a bad MP, and a bad person in general. Here's hoping for complications.
