Just perused Maria Caulfield’s voting history, she seems pretty deplorable.
I suppose (despite voting against human rights, for military action, for Brexit, against reforms to government, against bank regulation, for mass surveillance, against measures to prevent climate change etc), with an open mind I’d like to hear thoughts on what she’s actually done for the local community?
Is she as “self serving” as she seems?
This post isn’t necessarily anti Tory, she just strikes me as a bit of a tyrannical bigot

Champions the commuter after Southern Rail's continued tolerance of trade unions damaged the service; helped save music tuition in schools by backing the campaign; stridently in favour of ladies' work within the Conservative Party (vice-chair for women, she is), supports following the will of the British people in Brexit; supports the rights of the unborn child who cannot defend himself; supports our heroic armed forces and wears her poppy with pride; and elected twice with a huge and increasing majority. What's not to like? (Don't forget, Green propaganda about human-created climate change is as fake as fake news gets, and that's a fact. Parliament shouldn't waste its time following bad science.)

She's the best MP we've had. (Having a proper job before becoming an MP has given her an ability to represent most people's views)

The rail dispute ran for well over a year, I really wouldn’t put her down as a champion. Nothing was done to improve the situation, it was seen as setting the battleground for automating guards on every rail.

Ho ho ho. I think the poster calling themselves John Lewis must be a relative or something. What can one say about her? The Invisible Woman. Probably the most ineffectual MP that this constituency has ever had. Beamish and Rathbone were both useless, but our present representative has taken uselessness to a whole new level. At least Baker gave it some decent effort.

How can she 'represent most people's views' when more people voted against her than for her? Tory vote 2017: 26,820. Combined Labour and Lib Dem vote: 27,372. Do those anti-Tory voters become pro-Tory overnight because she had 'a proper job'?

Supports women by opposing reform of abortion law (because of her Catholic faith). Supports Brexit in a remain constituency. She's very representative of herself.

@Sensible. That was one of the funniest posts I have read on here in a long time. A career in comedy must surely follow.

It's ok to disagree.
Most normal people agree with her. We don't feel the need to shout about it or call people names when they disagree with us.

On what evidence do you base that statement? Also, please enlighten us on what qualifies as a "normal" person.
I'm not "politically charged" in the slightest but it's obvious that our mp is as much use as a chocolate teapot.

Deplore her party and her personal politics. However, as a constituency MP I have found her to be surprisingly reactive and positive. I have no doubt her interventions helped keep my very elderly neighbours in their home when the council was trying to evict them shortly after their brother died. She did a good thing. Wouldn't make me vote for her, but you did ask.

Not only does she support Brexit, she seems to have allied herself with the headbangers of Moggy's Europe Research Group. She sat next to David "Thick As Mince" Davis at one of their press conferences the other day, presumably to make him look more intelligent by comparison.
Has anyone else noticed she doesn't do press interviews from Cliffe Bridge any more? Mr C-T reckons she's realised it makes her vulnerable if anyone fancies re-enacting chucking the magistrate in the Ouse.

Presumably you mean 'views'. It does make me laugh how there are people who like to imagine that being 'moderate' or 'centre' is not as extreme as being left or right.

Clifford, it was a democratic election, and Maria polled about 5000 votes more than the candidate in second place.

I remember a sociology teacher trying to convince us, his class, that there’s no deferential voters any more, that people don’t just vote for posh people because they think posh people are best at running the country and fully deserve all their inherited wealth and power. If we only had the Lewes Forum in those days, he wouldn’t have been so adamant.
