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 Â£301 per vote. Ealing Southallâ€™s Virendra Sharma costs us Â£517 per vote and Ealing Northâ€™s Stephen Pound costs us Â£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.
