After a three week sitting MPs have a three week break coinciding with bad weather and school holidays.
Many MPs work diligently through these recesses, doing the hard yards in their electorates for most of the holidays. Those who are wise take a bit of time off as they can’t be working all the time.
The problem for me as a tax payer is those MPs who “spend some time with the family” for the full three weeks, doing fuck all in their constituency or for their party while waxing fat off the tax-payer.
All readers should ask their local MP if they are going on an extended holiday or if they will be working during recess, and ask them how many other holidays they have taken already this year. Many seem to think that school holiday recesses are always time off with the family, not a time to get on top of the issues in their electorate and doing the work for the party that put them there.
List MPs of course have no constituents and so tend to slope off un-noticed by anyone, including their party.
