Whose reality?

The Guardian reports that disgraced Tory MP, Derek Conway has been suspended from the House of Commons for ten days for an offence that would surely have got anybody else sacked. Duncan Borrowman, the Liberal Democrat Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Old Bexley and Sidcup, has referred the matter to the police.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the Guardian Marina Hyde speculates that Mr. Conway's son, Henry, may well end up on reality TV within six months. The worrying thing is we just know that she is not joking.
Imho, the leader of the Conservative Party would do well to listen to your suggestions on this matter.

Careful: remember Bradlaugh. The only people who are able - should be able - to remove an honourable member are those who put him there in the first place.

That said, the law protects electors from criminals. If Mr Conway is convicted of fraud, as many people outside the Westminster village feel he should be, and is sentenced to a gaol term of a year or greater, he will automatically be disbarred.

never mind the son, sadly Conway himself will be on reality tv before very long ....
