Attended prize-giving of annual Dry-Stone Walling Competition, Little Asby
After having finished writing speech for Harlow Civic Service tmmrw, now pleased to be at Cllr Mike Garnett Old Harlow Tory branch barbecue.
I could go on, because there are dozens more like those. The point of pointing out these tweets is to show those who think MPs are lazy, good for nothing individuals, that after a week in Westminster, most MPs will be out today in their constituencies or at political meetings.
Whereas you and I have been shopping, having our hair cut, watching Germany thrash the arse off the Argies or watching the tennis - or indulging in some other hobby or pastime.
Think on that, next time you hear someone mindlessly slagging off lazy MPs.
Yes, they knew it was part of the job when they were elected, and many of the functions they attend will be enjoyable. But the fact of that matter is that they are still "on duty" and have little choice about giving up their entire weekends at the expense of their family life.
It's a choice the rest of us don't have to make.
