Geraldine Smith MP, Champagne Socialist?

I wonder if excessive champagne consumption makes your hair change colour.

If you've found your way here before you might have read that I upset MP for Morecambe and Lunesdale, Geraldine Smith, last year. She was so upset she phoned my home when I was away last November and rather nastily ranted at my parents that she was going to sue me. Such a nice girl.

She has developed some expensive tastes has our Jezza and, according to today's Mail on Sunday, champagne is one of them. Even if she does allegedly pour it into plant pots. You see in this article in the Mail on Sunday she is alleged, by a couple of fellow Labour MPs, to have become involved in a champagne slurping contest with another prat MP, Bill "Loadsamoney" Etherington, famous left-wing champagne guzzler.

This is how the article starts:

Two Labour MPs took part in a champagne drinking contest on an official Commons junket to Paris, which led to one of them being violently ill.
Left-winger Bill Etherington drank so much that a doctor was called.

It was feared the MP might die after he defeated fellow Labour MP Geraldine Smith in the expenses-fuelled boozing competition.

I don't have a problem with people having drinking competitions but at least pay for the booze yourself and don't do it when you are representing your country. But we all know that MPs are complete shites who think pissing taxpayers money down a drain, or projectile vomitting it against a Parisien wall, is fine.

But in defence of the indefensible prat Etherington, there are certain morals involved in drinking competitions. Even worse than making a complete prat of yourself, and shaming your country into the bargain, is being a spineless shite who pretends to be drinking while the other person gets worse, and worse and, in his case, so much worse that a doctor has to be called. Now a person who does that is a complete and utter shit who deserves to be forced to gulp a couple of bottles of whisky in short order, followed by a good long stomach pump as a forfeit.

More on Bill Etherington here.

But below is her voting record on key issues (from They Work For You), not particularly impressive in my opinion:

Has never voted on a transparent Parliament.
Voted a mixture of for and against introducing a smoking ban.
Voted moderately for introducing ID cards.
Voted a mixture of for and against introducing foundation hospitals.
Voted moderately against introducing student top-up fees.
Voted very strongly for Labour's anti-terrorism laws.
Voted very strongly for the Iraq war.
Voted very strongly against an investigation into the Iraq war.
Has never voted on replacing Trident.
Voted very strongly for the hunting ban.
Voted moderately against equal gay rights.
Voted moderately against laws to stop climate change.
