A tale of two MPs

This story comes to us from the London Borough of Haringey.

David Lammy, Labour MP for Tottenham, told a hustings meeting that he has done 10,000 pieces of casework in ten years.

Lynne Featherstone, Lib Dem MP for Hornsey & Wood Green, meanwhile has helped over 28,000 people in less than ten years.

(As many people have made more than one piece of casework done for them, that means the rate of work is more than three times David Lammy’s – and in less time and including a period before Lynne became an MP, i.e. before she got an office and Parliamentary staff to help do casework.)

    You mean to tell me, Lynne Featherstone has helped 28,000 people? If so, great. I didn’t realise that in a seat of 47,000 voters, Lynne Featherstone has helped 28,000! Wow. Or has she just, as I suspect,written a letter back? Where has she been successful in getting leave to remain? where has she been successful in getting people into housing? Where has she been successful in preventing Haringey Council from evicting people in arrears? All 28,000? I sincerely doubt it.

    And unless you can say the figure provided by the Lab guy is based on the same criteria as Lynne’s 28,000, which it probably isn’t, then you shouldn’t be making petty comparisons.

    But, I’m not surprised you tried – welcome to the world of the duplicitous Liberal Democrats! 😀
