He came to visit the new offices that my old company moved into back in 2014. He's massively tall, even compared to me, and he's a massive bellend. Just wanted to punch him square in the face the whole time.

Shrewsbury has always been the kind of place that would vote for a rotting carcass if you put a blue flag on it, so if this actually comes to pass I'll be amazed -- but it's nice to dream.

Whenever I think of ghastly MPs like him, I always shudder to think about the quality of those the local Tories rejected.

You had me all confused. I'm going off looking for by-election results.

Has anyone on here got nice things to say about meeting or interacting with politics people?

A politics man came to visit here once, I can't remember exactly when or why but our big bosses were looking for state funding or something. He's an MP and from google I can see was 'Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Development and Infrastructure'

He was nice enough but also didn't seem too interested and was in a bit of a rush, quickly came in and met a few senior staff (somehow including an idiot like me), offered some platitudes, then looked a bit bored and went off again. When he shook my hand he said "it's an honour to meet you" and that always stuck in my head because I thought it seemed overly, trying too hard, to be charming. Don't fucking lie to me, it's no honour - maybe it's nice to meet normal folk but also that's your damn job. Keep it real, as the kids say said back when I was young, it's 'nice' or 'great' or 'cool' to meet you would be fine thanks.


Some years later, a different politics person came and did a talk at the party we held for our 10 year celebration. She spoke nicely and eloquently in front of everyone and I quite liked her BUT she also seemed to appear like she was taking a lot, and I mean a lot, of credit for things that weren't by her hand. I was also sat next to a professor (a client of ours) that has a reputation as a bit of a gruff guy and had been enjoying some bevarages. The professor would mutter under his breath, but at the same time not all that quietly, things like 'bullshit', 'these people' and 'what do they know anyway' (I like him).

Yeah, I've been on several Zoom calls with my MP, and one with a shadow minister, and spoken on the phone about some stuff. Everytime it has been massively insightful, really interesting, and I leave thinking "bloody hell, she's clever".

Rishi Sunak’s government has blocked legislation passed by the Scottish parliament that would make Scotland the first part of the UK to introduce a self-identification system for people who want to change gender.

Trap well sprung here.
