Gordon Brown Forgets He Is A Paid Mp

Recommended Posts

Crisis talks averted the loss of hundreds of jobs at Grangemouth last week, just a few miles from Gordon Brown’s constituency,’ said Henry Smith, MP for Crawley.

‘But where was the Labour ex-leader? He was sunning himself in Mexico, at a beachside hotel in Acapulco.

‘Today, Gordon Brown joked that he is an ‘ex-politician’, whilst on another foreign jaunt. But he is still paid more than £65,000 a year to be an MP. Hard-pressed taxpayers are footing the bill.

Turn up to work once every couple of months and get paid tens of thousands plus a gold plated pension for doing so. Not to mention the first class flights and 5* hotels paid for by the Gordon and Sarah Brown Foundation. Who says mediocrity doesn't pay.

It makes a mockery of MPs who do take the time to serve their constituents. Brown has been completely deceptive in the 2010 vote, he obviously had plans that conflicted with his duties as an MP, but he stood for reelection anyway. He seems to be treating his MPs salary as a startup grant for him to get his other project off the ground. Another rent seeker trousering public money which allows him to exist the high life as an international leisure class person, shuffling between posh hotels etc under the guise of slogging for charidee. He's a complete delusional and public life would be better if he just went away.

Likely scenario?: He faces a lot of pressure into the 2015 election and decides not to stand [even if this was always his plan]. If he stands again, and is reelected, then his drone voter constituents deserve all they get. A couple of big 'ifs' right enough. I wonder if he'll get his seat in the Lords shortly afterwards to allow the gravy train to continue without the inconvenience of pretending to give a toss about constituents.
