DEFRA and the EU: Referendum, what referendum?

 Are you one of those people that feels a need a do a job properly? If you are, then you’d make a lousy MP. The MP for Camborne, Redruth and Pool (otherwise known as CRaP, legoland and rabbithutch central), who happens to also be the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries & Food, George Eustice, is strongly against doing his job. Would you give an important job to someone who’s admitted that he can’t do his current job properly because he’s never in his constituency to do it? Well, the Government did and in a surprise response to a letter written by the Green Party MP Caroline Lucas, George admitted that:

“Defra invests a significant amount in agricultural and environmental research to underpin policy development and implementation. Much of this is relevant to the development of future policy in the context of EU exit.

However, research specifically to inform agricultural and environmental policy once the UK leaves the EU, which is distinct from the department’s on-going research programmes, has not been commissioned in the last 6 months.”

Now how surprising is that? The same MP that says he’s against greenfield development while allowing greenfield development in his constituency to go ahead while his constituents attempt to contact him about the matter, the same MP who said he had no idea a doctors surgery in his constituency was shutting down even after the subject spent a long time in the media spotlight after a petition collected thousands of signatures, the same MP of whom various members of his constituency have attempted to contact but have never got a response from, the same MP who when contacted about Devonwall said he won’t do anything and we should just sit back and admit defeat regardless of what his constituents want, can’t do neither his Parliamentary role nor his Ministerial role? Quite obvious why he’s going high places isn’t it? When someone displays such neglect in not one but two roles of their job, how do they still have a job?
