You know I have a sneaking sense of admiration for our local MP, Matthew Offord (AKA Souperman & Captain Useless). Unlike most of his rather bland colleagues, he knows how to let his hair down and have a bit of fun. He has many marvellous qualities, the best being that he stands his round in the pub.
He seems to enjoy a drink, which as a half Irish/half Australian, is not a problem to me. He doesn't mince his words. According to the Daily Mail, the following exchange took place between Offord and Labour MP's.
According to witnesses, it started when
senior Labour MP Dave Watts cast doubt on the Tories’ record on defence
in a question to Sir Peter. Mr Offord, 43, a former BBC executive, said: ‘I’m not having that. ‘You lot have blood on your hands because you sent our troops into battle without the right gear.’ Mr
Watts retorted: ‘You’ve had too much red wine.’ The Tory MP shot back:
‘Gobshite!’ Labour MP Russell Brown waded in, ordering other MPs close
to Mr Offord to ‘quieten him down’.
