I can only have contempt for the Tory MP Philip Davies.
Despite having made a pledge to speak up for carers in Parliament, he spent 90 minutes effectively killing a bill which would have stopped carers having to pay for hospital parking.
Frankly, it is not worth venting any fury at Davies.
It is barely worth pointing out his lack of compassion or his emotional distance from anyone who may have voted for him.
His sadness is he revels in his unpopularity and stubbornness.
Let him dwell there.
I am writing this because I am fortunate enough to have a platform on which to do so.
But also because my experience is not unique.
It is not just carers who should be exempt from hospital parking charges, everyone should be.
