Even a stalwart council-house boy MP with a backbone can't know everything...so he may have, as Richard oft & quaintly puts it, paraded his ignorance but he at least has the internal scaffolding so many others lack...a good man, maybe, to have on one's side. Life is a learning process, whatever one's knowledge.
These are our legislators ... our representatives ... our MPs ... we're not paying them to go to college for learning experiences ... they should know these things.
...but they don't, Richard, and neither, with a handful of exceptions does the bulk of our legislature.
That they share in common with the major part of the electorate which sees & hears contradictory sound-bires coming so fast & furiously that it's impossible to sort out the sheeples from the goatles. We, the sheeples, are only partly aware that we are being royally shafted but we cannot put our finger on solutions clouded with smoke, mirrors & mysteriously emptying purses.
This blog tells it how it is...but the great unwashed still listens to & reads the MSM...and will applaud that MP for standing up for the elephants.
