Vaughan Roderick has written a blog post concerning the latest campaign by the MP for Montgomeryshire. It concerns his regular column for the Daily Sport. It seems the Independent has reported here that Lembit Opik is upset that it isn't possible to access the Daily Sport website from the House of Commons. Coincidentally, the MP for Montgomeryshire writes a regular column for this utterly disreputable newspaper, which is suitable to be read only by seedy characters, hidden in dark corners, wearing macs and dark glasses. I don't suppose any other similar publications are available to MPs either. And quite right to.
The people of Montgomeryshire really should know about this stuff - so like Vaughan, I'll give you a flavour of what his political reflections which he is so angry is not available to his fellow-MPs, while they sit at their office computers.
"Drinking is about attitudes so I suggest an advertising campaign starring Daily Sport babes. It could feature my friend Lucinda warning "If you're out chugging I'm not hugging". That might sober up the male population.
My bubbly buddy, Nicole Shamier (we're just good friends by the way) spends evenings in watching Panorama while I'm busy researching stories for the Daily Sport, out with my chums Gemma and Ashlea Massey.....But just think...... If my delightful friend, Gemma cocked up her pension contributions, should she privatise herself? And if her lovely sister Ashlea was in debt, should she be nationalised? NEVER. In my book, these lovely ladies should always belong in the bosom of the Sport."
Tell me what you think of this. Hope I don't need to remind you that anything tasteless or libellous will not be allowed.
