The Poor Bloody Infantry

The poor bloody infantry

Edward Leigh Conservative Gainsborough “May I ask the Minister for Women and Equalities whether some MPs are more equal than others? Back Benchers, the poor bloody infantry, have to traipse through the Lobby for every three-line Whip, but Cabinet Ministers can sit brazenly on the Front Bench and then slope off in their limousines after betraying the people and the Prime Minister”.

Penny Mordaunt The Secretary of State for International Development, Minister for Women and Equalities “All the Ministers on the Front Bench this morning are here and ready for their duties, in particular the Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, my hon. Friend Justin Tomlinson, who was ironing his shirt 20 minutes before this session started. We are in turbulent times, but we must trust our institutions and trust in democracy. I am also the Secretary of State for International Development, and I will take messy democracy over any other system in the world”.

John Bercow Speaker of the House of Commons, salary £142,826. “I am tad taken aback that Justin Tomlinson feels it necessary to disclose to his ministerial boss his personal habits in relation to such matters, but there we go”.

The “Poor bloody infantry” are paid £77,379 plus every kind of fiddled expenses they can lay their hands on. If Mr Leigh doesn’t like getting his fat arse off his green bench he can always bugger off! Then the poor bloody public might feel some satisfaction!
