James Wharton - now a Life Peer!

I live in Stockton South and Wharton was the invisible man Within the constituency when he was our MP. He was however always available for photo opportunities for his great work leading the Northern Showerhouse. He is a loathsome man with no redeeming features but for some reason good enough to be given a peerage. Thousands of Teessiders work tirelessly for the area and charities with no recognition for their work but this creep gets a peerage for what? I am deeply ashamed that I live in a constituency who kicked out a local doctor who has worked his socks off during the pandemic to put in his place a Wharton clone who again is invisible and votes against things like not allowing the NHS to be exempt from Trade talks and the banning of the important of chlorinated chicken from the US. This country makes me so angry
Totally agree.

It’s called ‘principles’ and the good Dr wasn’t prepared to bin them off to secure a victory based on lies. People needed to see the election for what it was and not the Brexit referendum round two. I asked people on here to look at the individuals, their contribution to their community and how they would represent them and the place they lived in in parliament. It was a no brainier in Stockton South, a bloke who lived and breathed the area and who fought for the poorest and most disadvantaged versus another Tory career politician who was a mirror image of Wharton. In a time when politicians leading the country lie just about every time they open their mouths, it would have been refreshing to have principled people sitting in the commons. We reap what we sow.
Be fair - does Williams do Australian accents for comedy value?

Paul Williams just needed to say he was in favour of brexit after all.

Would have been a massive lie but the electorate have overwhelmingly demonstrated they don't care about politicians lying, as long as it's what they want to hear. In fact some seem to prefer it if anything.
One of the things I liked about Paul Williams is I think he was an honest bloke trying to do a good job. If you have to win by lying and cheating it is not a victory at all IMO. Unfortunately the rest of the country thought otherwise. Leave the lies to the Blue side they will get found out eventually.

Cannot believe some of the tw@ts getting honours this time around. Its always a farce but this is shameful.

I wasn't being serious. But yep agree with everything you've said.

To be honest, I think you can say that for most of the country! Don't know how many times I heard people say they'd rather have anyone than Corbyn. You know, coz he was an IRA sympathiser, Hezbollah fund raiser etc etc... ad nauseum.
There are people I know, I wouldn't call them friends, who honestly believed the mock-up of Corbyn wearing an 'I ❤ the IRA' tshirt was real! They'd be on FB frothing at the mouth at the prospect of him becoming PM.

Oh yeah! Same here. And ironic that they thought the photos of Teresa Mayhem curtsying in front of McGuiness was a fake!! I lost many 'friends' over their politics and their attitudes towards different races. I feel much better and cleaner now though!
