This Blog published a warning about serial time-waster Philip Davies after he filibustered a private member’s bill attempting to outlaw ‘revenge’ evictions last year.
How sad that the good people of Shipley saw fit to return this creature to Parliament in this year’s general election.
Perhaps one of that constituency’s electorate would care to explain why they decided to inflict him on us again?
Backbench Conservative MPs have made lengthy speeches in an attempt to kill a bill aimed at exempting carers from hospital parking charges.
Philip Davies, who spoke for 90 minutes, said Labour MP Julie Cooper’s bill was “unnecessary” as hospitals could make their own decisions locally.
His colleague, David Nuttall, warned it could divert money away from frontline NHS services.
Their interventions mean the bill risks running out of Parliamentary time.
