Apparently MPs think we’ll vote for them again if they look as much like a mindless party robot as possible.

Do MPs Twitter feeds really have to be such tedious bullshit? “Today I visited <local worthies>. <Photo> They do such excellent work.”

@SnarkyPlatypus @R_Chirgwin There’s still at least two antechinus in this building. Plenty to go around. Something must be done.

Dealing with a corpse.

Sure, @jturner_ibrs, but Mr Rabbit will solve that problem by touring the world and punching things. Just random things. It’ll work.

Apparently a few staged photo ops and vaguely assertive sound bites makes you a major international player these days, not actual results.
