She said that she would do this before the General Election and so she has fulfilled her promise. It may have escaped folk's notice but, also as promised, she has vigorously spoken up for the Constituency in the House of Commons on transport and health issues, two of her main manifesto commitments. In the space of only a few weeks since being elected, she has already achieved an impeccable attendance and voting record at Westminster. Well Done Maria..........just keep it up!

Publicity gimmick to influence the feeble minded aka most of the Tory party supporters. More sensible folk can see right through it for what it is.

While it appears to all intents and purposes a valiant gesture, it leaves me feeling empty. I would prefer she donate 10% to the Department of Transport or the crumbling welfare state. I'm glad her attendance is high and she is campaigning on local issues, but I feel sad that England has become so Victorian in its approach towards helping the poor...

Victorian? How can you compare today's poor with the Victorian poor. We have come a long way since then, there are by Victorian standards no poor at all in this country. Even in the last 50 years the poor have become less poor. In the 70s I can remember kids at school who were from poor families. They smelt, their clothes were in bad condition, and they were thin, their parents looked thin and ill etc, this is rare nowadays. The problem, is that the rich are seen to be getting richer while the poor stay the same. I can't remember my point now so I'll make way for the thumbs down.

You are exactly right, Ben. No-one needs to be so poor these days that they cannot wash or eat properly. Although some people choose to go around scruffy and moaning.
I am not bothered that some get extremely rich: as long as I am comfortable. Let's keep the chips on the plate, not on our shoulders.

Shame the Tory hierarchy aren't so committed to their so-called manifesto promises. Same as in 2010, pledge after pledge now being quietly dropped.

That's the point Lewes Ian. Tories do think the electorate is stupid. They must be right for all the leeches to get in.

Well done Maria! I'm not a natural Tory voter, but you have started well, and I hope you have a little more moral backbone than your predecessor Norman Baker. All you need to do is get the Lewes-Uckfield Rail Link built this century! Thanks

Some awful people on this forum & Red Ken & similar the perfect example of the bitter leftie
Might have escaped their notice but the current MP for Lewes was elected with a majority vote
The Labour Party result in the last election was another nail in the coffin of a party that is a grotesque parody of what it should be. That parody is typified by some of the remarks on here who appear to be completely unable to accept the workings of democracy in this country
The applause on here for an idiot with a so called garden centre who decided to charge Tory voters 10% extra sums up the resident leftie spite
The wonderful people and great leaders of a long gone Labour Party will be turning in their graves at some of the stuff on here

I do dislike this cute use of 'folks'. It seems to have come over from America. Obama does it all the time. Still, I suppose it's too late to complain now.

I wonder if any of you history boys knows who said;
"I was asked whether I was trying to restore Victorian values. I said straight out I was. And I am."
Clue - In this vein the govt of the day stopped funding hospital builds because the big industrialists were supposed to have Victorian values and provide them instead (they didn't).

I know who said that - spit- and the result is the bad things that the Victorians lived with, but they covered them up with The Empire and flag waving. We have to live with it in the open. Relatively, it is only technology that has made our lives easier than the Victorians'
