SB. don't know if she is your MP (very vague about parliamentary boundaries, but in this article, she sounds like a genuine person rather than a self-seeking automaton like most MPs (including the ones down here)

She is our MP. Have never seen her anywhere, I believe she hides away at her secret address.
Hemming was always to be found lurking somewhere public or playing in his band, for charity, mostly for Macmillan Nurses.

I have just received a questionnaire from her asking my opinion on a few matters.
To assist the peasants that support her, it is a multiple choice questionnaire.
Not so much about my opinion, far more about which of her opinions I prefer.
Binned it.

All I get from the article is that she has a foul mouth and no patience.
Sounds just like me.
Do you agree with me, or, do you not disagree with me? Your choice.

I agree with you in principle but disagree totally out of habit.

I'm annoyed in principle but not at all surprised out of habit.

I like this quote ....
She has publicly condemned her own party’s deep-rooted sexism, and during a Commons speech in a tampon tax debate delivered the memorable line, “Every man sitting in this house is now here because, at some point, his mother had a period.”
I thought, and still do, that it was because at some point "mother" didn't.
