The world is run by those who show up

I saw the Commons Performance Cockpit mentioned on the Guido Fawkes blog yesterday. It is provided by a company called KeyBusinessInsight and visualises Parliamentary data so that you can compare MPs. I looked up our three local MPs.

Tory MP Angie Bray beats her Labour neighbours hands down. Bray costs us £301 per vote. Ealing Southall’s Virendra Sharma costs us £517 per vote and Ealing North’s Stephen Pound costs us £543 per vote.

Angie has her foot to the floor. The Labour boys are coasting. To carry on my motoring metaphor all of our MPs are cheap runners.
