It comes as no surprise to us at Leaky Towers to discover that the disloyal,despicable and hypocritical Birkenhead Labour MP Frank Field won £250 (50 quid on the nose at 5/1) betting on a Tory victory at the recent General Election.
Even the Daily Mail ,which like some local rags is something of a Field mouthpiece , reported the matter disapprovingly.
And what did pious Frankenfield – who we would have thought would frown upon squandering a nifty fifty on gambling – do with his winnings you might ask?.Why treat his campaign team to a self-congratulatory chow down at The Refreshment Rooms in Rock Ferry ,as let’s face it it must be so hard being part of a campaign team in one of the safest parliamentary seats in the country!.
You’d think that in the week that Frankenfield accused “Wirral Council officers of dithering while children go hungry” he’d lead by example and donate his winnings to a local child poverty charity or to his beloved foodbanks wouldn’t you?.
But no! that’s not how slavish loyalty is bought from the docile and servile party faithful is it ? .Seemingly there are still those who are willing to sell their soul for the price of a slap up meal.
Pass the sickbag!……
