Shipley is so full of crap...

    Or it appears to be so, based upon its representation in the House:
    Or in plainer English: there was a proposal in Parliament to allow carers free parking at hospitals which Shipley has put a stop to; not, as any reasonable entity would do, through productive discussion, but by dint of spouting so much crap that progress was drowned in it.

    I cannot think of any argument as to why carers ought not to have free parking when they need to go to hospital, let alone a good one... anybody from Shipley like to present a defence?

    Philip Davies is a massive git. I have no idea why the people of Shipley keep voting him in.

    Here he is lying before the election:

    Yeah: I'd echo the fact that I don't think there's a defence. I think it's disgusting that you have to pay for parking at a hospital.

    He's a lying toad. Typical Tory.

    He is a total bell end.

    This is the same Philip Davies who said that legalising same-sex marriage discriminates against straight people

    Well he did speak up for carers, droning on for 90 minutes to deliberately scupper a Labour initiated bill to HELP carers. He has vowed to carry on this odious tradition of filibustering to please his own toxic vanity. Shame on those people of Shipley who put him there to do that.

    There's a common theme to this Tory behaviour which they routinely enjoy. On Wednesday, Jeremy Corbyn slapped them down at PMQs, "This is NOT entertainment!"

    So how upset are you that he is representing you all as being so full of crap?
    Enough that you'll join the campaign to get him out?
    Turnout 71.7% and he got 50% of that: can't really blame voter apathy or a dodgy electoral system: he is their true representative.

    I propose that we place an embargo on Shipley unless their MP steps down or wears a gag for the rest of the term.

    If there is not one, then perhaps we should start one.

    He fights his campaigns on local issues: improved transport infrastructure, limiting disturbance from the airport and opposing unpopular developments. From that point of view he is the people's choice, the problem is what he does beyond that.

    So in other words, Shipley is entirely selfish.

    Hmm, a good constituency MP is supposed to do such things.

    Exactly, it is a shame he's a bit of a tosser in other matters. But if he could of stopped the incinerator being built in my back garden I'd of voted for him.

    He has been very vocal in his opposition of the proposed new Sainsburys at the top of Saltaire High Street. That is the overwhelming opinion of the locals too.
    maybe the voters see him as 'fighting the good fight' on their doorstep and are (unfortunately) unaware of his other political ideals

    He's a lot more than that.

    Yeah I know, I have a habit of understating things. When I read that article someone posted earlier I wanted to headbutt him right in his stupid smug face.

    How much better could he do those things if he was not so busy spouting shit?
    It must take some considerable effort to write a speech that lasts an hour and a half without it saying anything helpful.
