Another One Joins The Hit List

The blogosphere has today quite rightly been getting stuck into Dawn Butler, MP for Brent South. She who claims to have a personalised, endorsement signed by Barack Obama...


"...you should have the audacity of hope and when someone asks you can she do it, you respond yes we can".

Can anyone really, in all honesty, bring them self to believe that an intelligent, articulate man like Barack Obama, hugely conscious of his public image, would ever put his name to such complete drivel ?

This is, in fact, much more the likely output of someone who struggles to put more than two written words together, such as, err....Dawn Butler here.

As Iain Dale, who broke the story says in his second post, credit should go to Unity for a proper forensic examination. This is what bloggers should do; say the things that the mainstream media will not.

Whatever one thinks of the quote and the signature, what is incontrovertible is that Butler has used House of Commons headed stationery for her own campaigning, and that is a clear breach of the rules. Nothing will happen, I suspect, but she should get hauled over the coals for it.

I'm adding her to my small of growing list of irrelevant, nondescript MPs whom I would dearly like to see stuffed at the next General Election:
...Kerry McCarthy,
...Emily Thornberry
...and my own, utterly useless representative (using the term loosely) Kali Mountford, who speaks in the House roughly every other month, who votes less than two-thirds of the time and whose track record on replying to correspondence in a timely fashion is frankly awful.

You forget Paul Flynn, the tosser I sent a copy of 1984 to. ;-)

I just get so embarrassed by this stuff. Where is the parliamentary dignity?

I wouldn't see a socialist like Obama as a good endorsement.
