Andrew Rosindell, Tory MP for Romford, has tabled a whole bunch of questions to a whole bunch of Government departments, including asking a series of Qs along the lines of “to ask the Sec of State how much his/ her Department has spent on maintaining its Twitter feed/ Youtub channel/ Flickr channel in the past 12 months”. I suspect he is against such new-fangled ways of communicating with the Great British Public.
Meanwhile Tom Watson has moved on from asking about mobile phones and has been looking into the question of ministerial cars. Judging from the packed forecourt outside the Commons at the votes this afternoon, most of the new Ministers have taken full advantage of the perks of office and their car of choice is nine times out of ten a Prius. Eric Pickles however, I am reliably informed, prefers a Jag.
