Mascot Watch 18: "Rebel, Rebel" Edition

"Sorry, but I ain't having that!"

I don't know whether to be proud or disappointed.

Our esteemed mascot was on BBC Radio 4 last night defending his record of rebelling against the government on numerous occasions. But he only came in at number three of coalition MPs! For shame. We strive for excellence here!

Quips aside, it's incredibly refreshing to hear one of our elected rabble saying that he does/did "what I genuinely thought was the right thing to do", however unpalatable that may be to the idiots we have running the Westminster agenda. Precisely the reason we found it so easy to vote him the Spectator's Reader's Choice Parliamentarian of the Year, eh?

In discussion with Labour MP Jeremey Corbyn, our Phil managed to squeeze the little nugget in that boundary changes could lead to honest and proper-thinking MPs like himself being cut out of parliament altogether.

It's a 15 minute slot conducted in a non-confrontational - and sometimes humourous - manner so well worth a listen. Especially since our top geezer gave up part of his Sunday night to do it.

Of course some of us will move hell and high water to keep Phil in parliament - he shouldn't underestimate the support he has

Glad to hear it. :)

Top man, that Davies chappie.  His kind scares Cameron shitless because your mascot speaks up for the ordinary voter, whatever his or her origins, and a majority of around 10,000 ordinary voters supported him last time round, many moving across from other parties.

Cameron would love to slip in a compliant yes-man/woman and will happily engineer the boundary changes to rid himself of this turbulent priest of the populace. 

I don't know exactly how much 'hell and high water' Councillor Cooke can move, but many folk, not only constituents, hope it's a helluva lot and fast.
