An MP without original thought

How does a man who never had an original idea find his way into parliament?

What happens when your MP doesn’t know how to think?

How does a man who never had an original idea finds his way into parliament?

When MPs don’t understand politics or the issues of the day how can they maintain the illusion of competence?

That’s easy – they just toe the party line and pretend to be in control of the facts (not to mention their faculties). Vacuous back-benchers have followed this simple strategy for years, often quite successfully but only when their leaders aren’t just as clueless themselves.

That’s the unfortunate reality facing Mark Jenkinson MP. When Boris flip-flops and Jenky supports every pronouncement both before and after the U-turn he only highlights the incompetence of both himself and his boss.

Perhaps that’s why he’s more likely to insult and block interlocutors than engage with them. Perhaps he doesn’t know what to say. Perhaps he really is that stupid.

What do you think?
