A BUSY mum has urged MPs to back the Rwanda bill because she simply does not have room in her life for a general election right now.
38-year-old Susan Traherne from Gloucester still needs to send cards, wrap presents and do her big shop, leaving her unable to participate in democracy until mid-January at the earliest.
She said: “The Tories have had all year to implode. Doing it now isn’t fair on busy families trying to have festive fun.
“I can’t pay attention to new manifestos from all the major parties, and the Lib Dems, when I’ve got a carol concert to attend and a freezer to fill. Keir Starmer’s going to have to shelve his halting attempts to be charismatic until next year.
“When am I supposed to squeeze in popping to the polling booth? During a lull in a nativity play? I’ve got 20 minutes free next Tuesday and queuing at the Post Office will claim that.
“No, I’m sorry, we’re just going to have to let this shower of bastards rumble on for another fortnight. Booting them out will give us all something to look forward to in January.”
Rishi Sunak said: “Works for me. I’ve booked Chequers for the works Christmas do and can’t afford to lose my deposit.”
