Will Quince, the Member of Parliament for Colchester, tweeted on Saturday: “Just had to pay a parking fine for being 10mins late when in Devon, genuine mistake but caught on ANPR. Is it me or is £54 unreasonable”.
If his £54 parking fine is unreasonable for an honest mistake, perhaps he could say whether he thinks losing your entire income for a week or 4 weeks for an honest mistake like being late for an appointment at Job Centre Plus.
Do MPs really know what is happening to their constituents and the impact policies made and voted for by them are having in the real world? According to PoliticsHome, Ministers don’t. One can just wonder about some MPs.
