    I doubt they'll say No to the £3000.00 per year pay rise coming their way next april.

    Well deserved in these times if economic uncertainty and a huge comfort for those fearing for their jobs at the moment, I'm sure.

    If it makes anyone feel any better I don’t think she’s been in her office in quite some time, so she’s not actually in Stafford.

    Don’t know how that’s meant to make anyone feel better mind you.

    I'm more concerned about where 'they' all are

    Knowing where 'they' are not will always be valuable knowledge though

    Apparently the nuclear bunkers, plural, for the cabinet have had a refit in anticipation of Sybil disobedience and the Plague. Teenage Saints will surely follow

    Is the Pope Catholic?

    Why does it take someone like Rashy to influence a bunch of inept tossers to make the right decision ffs?

    It’s not a difficult choice, is it really?

    How much did they spend on the Eat out to help out scheme. And they'll still get in next time. Bastards.

    This is Theo. Theo is trying to remember why her press officer has asked her to stand with a variety of tin cans and a woman from the north.

    Theo still has flashbacks of almost drowning in a river on the Sandon Road. Her press officer said she needed to have a concerned face on that photo shoot like the one in front of the hospital. She had practiced for hours in front the 18th century gilt wood mirror at her lodgings in Sandon Hall. Theo is wearing gaiters just in case, and has some disinfectant spray and a cattle prod with her in case the woman from the north gets within 2 metres.

    Theo has tried checking in with her track and trace app, but it doesn’t recognise the QR code. Theo is underwhelmed by the artwork on the wall and the tin can exhibition. Her press officer reminds her that she isn’t at a reopening of the Shire Hall.

    Theo is feeling a little peckish. Her press officer had suggested a photo shoot supporting a local independent business. Theo doesn’t fancy an express cheeseburger from Wimpy. She has a craving for venison brought on by the memory of last night’s meeting on the Chase with some local doggers to discuss the impact of car park closures and forest fires.

    Theo is looking forward to escaping Stafford for a decent subsidised venison meal at Westminster before she has to return later in the year to find out how local businesses have stepped up to support disadvantaged children with free meals over the half term holiday. She has planned to pack her disinfectant spray, cattle prod and a hazmat suit in case she is forced to complete a visit to a Covid-safe school to talk to some younger students who are less likely to complain about their exams being affected next year.

    She’s been there for months apparently, she’s a neighbour of one of my close friends. My friend lives in the flat above.

    I see she’s been out and about lately though for a few photo opportunities, Victoria Park, Wildwood Park, trying to get credit for other people’s endeavours.
    Then back on the train to London.

    I do think it should be a rule that an MP actually lives in the area that they are meant to represent.

    I would imagine the good folks of Stone are actually quite glad that Cash doesn't live there. Can't say it's be overjoyed to bump into our 'dear lady' when popping into the Swan for a bite to eat.

    Yes, and I remember the "No more Cash for Bill" slogans in Stone at general election time.
