Tom Harris to stand down!

It is with a mixture of sadness and relief that I read the news on the Press Association's website that Tom Harris, Labour MP for Glasgow South (maj. 10,365), and former Minister of Transport is to stand down at the next general election.

Sadness, because he has provided so many of us with the opportunity to both slag him off for his myopic and distorted views on the failures of this awful Labour Government (despite his valiant yet doomed spin operation) and to ridicule his juvenile obsession with Dr Who, Star Wars and his strange taste in popular music.

Relief because this will mean that he will not be popping up on the airwaves every few minutes pontificating about anything and everything. The world of politics can only be a better place for his going.

It is reported that he is to retire to his estate in Croatia where he has already established a sanctuary for old (Labour) donkeys.

Oh Ted you had me for a minute there. I've just told Tom that I've blogged on Gordon Brown's decision to have all MPs strip searched upon entering and leaving the house.

What's this broganmail business? A right pest it is.

Ted Foan said...

Glad I got you interested! I'll check out your strip search story in a bit. Will we be able to see the CCTV at the HoP? Yes please!

The broganmail thing is affecting you too? I'll have to investigate.

Goodnight for now!
