It is not very often that I read Labour List, however I cannot allow this post on their website to pass with comment. It would appear that Ms. Bagshawe has commented unfavourably on the decision to allow dumping of low-grade nuclear waste at a site in her constituency, as reported by the BBC and the Guardian. One can but agree with Ms. Bagshawe that this does indeed make a mockery of the government's 'localism' policy, although she does omit to mention that it is therefore just a continuation of central government's policy of 'democratised dictatorship'.
"No doubt Bagshawe's concerns are linked to the size of her majority (which is less than 2,000) but nonetheless this is a remarkable attack on her own government, and another example of the rebellious nature of the 2010 intake
The first part of the quotation above may well be true, but the second most definitely cannot be - as witnessed by her voting record, where only once has she 'rebelled' against her party.
Chic-lit author or voting fodder MP - the decision is yours.
