Stewart Jackson has the almost identical problem. Stewart, a Tory who wanted a brexit outcome, with Boris in the driving seat. Stewart desperately wants people to like him, as a person, but the more he tries, the greater the number of people he appears to upset or distance. Its a personality thing, nothing more.
The point is Mr Jackson is supposed to be an MP first and 'a pain in the ar*e' second. The same goes for Jeremy Corbyn, but they both have amazingly thin skins, and a couple of nudges, press the right button, and the two "go off on one." It points to a massive inferiority complex in both of their genetic make ups.
The now famous Jacco 'suck it up' tweet, we suggest more a testament to the efficacy of the (subsidised) Westminster Claret, than sound political tweeted comment.
One look at the state of Jeremy Corbyns shabby front garden and broken fence, is also a pointer to his way of organising things. On his salary and allowances he could afford to hire in a jobbing gardener just to tidy it up a bit knowing that the media and cameras will be doorstepping his two up two down for weeks to come.
Thumbing through back copies of pictures of Mr Corbyn, its clear he's still mentally somewhere in the late 60's early 70's both in mindset and sartorial get up. The 'Agitprop' generation.
The ex High Street Lloyds Bank Manager Stewart Jackson MP who in a million years, will never have the worlds press, camping on his doorstep has by comparison now grown his hedge so high, and taken in lodgers, no its his relations, but why spoil a good gag?
Clearly Mr Corbyn wants to hang on until the Chilcott Report is published err next week?
Its so long ago, but you may recall Sir John Chilcot launched an inquiry into Britain’s participation in the Iraq war in July 2009. It will consider the period from 2001 until the end of July 2009, and is expected to be critical of the way then-Prime Minister Tony Blair led the country into the 2003 invasion of Iraq. All seems a bit pointless, but many families are still waiting for some proper answers.
So you understand why Corbyn wants to face up to Cameron and possibly get a message over about Tony Blairs role in the matter. Then you can safely say a 'face saving mechanism' will be found and Jeremy Corbyn will retire to the back benches.
The same cannot be said for Stewart Jackson who is already firmly on the back benches. Mr Gove is hardly likely to welcome him ( Shailesh Vara MP has issued a press statement backing Gove). And the other leading contender Teresa May is said not to be close to our Stewart... All good knockabout stuff but these MPs ARE BEING PAID WHILE ALL THIS IS GOING ON! Just get on with running the countr, and no more hired in limo bus jaunts. Use Stagecoach like we all do, well not so much in Peterborough...the councillors cancelled a whole load of essential evening services if you remember...
