Blaydon Labour MP David Anderson should have a motto of “Better late than never!” He called on MPs to visit pubs in the summer recess. The only problem was he made the call in October, a month after summer officially ended and with the long nights of autumn drawing in!
Mr Anderson also announced he was looking forward to the publication of a report on the blacklisting of trade unions, a day after the report was published!
And in October Mr Anderson congratulated the boxer Amir Khan on his victory over Andriy Kotelnik, a mere 3 months after the match was held.
All of the above comes from the Early Day Motions signed by Mr Anderson since the end of the summer recess.
As the saying goes, “Better late than never!”
