MP outraged at suspension of Parliament but on the other hand, six weeks off

AN MP has admitted half of him is furious at the politically motivated proroguing of Parliament while the other half is punching the air shouting ‘Whoo’. 

Roy Hobbs, member for Stoke-on-Trent North, fought alongside Labour party colleagues to stop last night’s suspension but is now on holiday until mid-October just a week after coming back.

He said: “Bloody constitutional outrage and all that, but school’s out for autumn. Sweet.

“Being fair, the last week’s been hard work. All the meetings in the morning, the Commons until late, WhatsApp groups you can’t even remember joining pinging you to sleep. Nightmare.

“But, much as I’m furious at prorogation, I’ve now got a leisurely fortnight at home before conference which as a loyal but undistinguished backbencher is a jolly anyway.

“He’s done us a solid really, Boris. Gave us time enough to f**k him over and then put our feet up. Good lad.”
