MP Robert Halfon - Sponsored by PG Tips

You might remember me mentioning a few weeks back about a letter I wrote to my local paper regarding a poor woman who suffered terrible unprovoked verbal abuse for being overweight ( Read it here )
Well the Harlow Star did indeed print my letter and since then I've had many friends and colleagues tell me it was pretty good what I did and that I was 100% right #Smugmode.

Then this week I discovered Tory MP for Harlow Robert Halfon had decided to respond to the woman who had suffered.
While I'm not going to retype his letter here as to be honest I'd rather eat live wasps I will link to the article in his blog called The problem of childhood obesity which was basically what he was waffling on about in his letter. As you can see he doesn't really address what was being discussed but feel the need to shove more Conservative Big Society shite down out throats.
On the plus side though he did invite the poor lady in question to come and drink tea with him in the House of Commons.

Once again for the second time in as many weeks I got on the old email.
I can't help but notice Harlow MP Robert Halfon completely missed the point in his letter (Compassion, not abuse) in last weeks Harlow Star.
Not only is it completely odious of him to plug himself and his agenda off the back of someone suffering verbal abuse I'm wondering how drinking cups of tea in the House of Commons will help?
I look forward to seeing Mr.Halfon put forward his scheme to The Prime Minister "Prevent bullying by drinking pg tips."

Can't say that I'm that convinced they will print this one.

  1. Dear Sir/Madam,

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support in this circumstance. As a clear, hardcore, supporter of our future leader, the revered and respected, Robert Halfon, you will understand just as we do the importance of our cause and why your continued internet PR has been nothing but an exceptional boost to the 'Halfon for PM' campaign.

    It is unfortunate that in this day and age people resort to sarcasm or vindictive posts on the internet when they are frightened by such incredible, promising and quite frankly, unique ideas for the future that Robert Halfon has. It is simply a case of simpler minds not comprehending the vision Robert has.

    Thankfully however, your un-moveable allegiance to his cause has not gone unnoticed and as a result we would like to offer you the distinct opportunity to join us and Robert for drinks and nibbles at the prestigious William Aylmer, the local Wetherspoons, next Saturday at 7pm.

    If you could RSVP ASAP so we can begin printing 'Robert Halfon - Future President of FIFA' leaflets and other media for distribution on the evening.

    In closing, Thank You!

    Kindest Regards,

    Robert Halfon's Great Aunty Mildred
