Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    Retiring MP brands constituents as "tedious"

    Tony Banks, a Labour party MP is well known for his sometimes controversial comments. In an interview broadcast today on BBC Radio 4, the MP who will be quitting his seat at the next general election said of his constituency work "It's 22 years of the same cases, but just the faces and the people changing. I found it intellectually numbing, tedious in the extreme." He also said his work made him feel like a "high powered social worker". I'm sure then that he has made the right decision to step down at the general election. After all, usually when people don't like their jobs they don't publicly slate their clients and bemoan the fact they have had to deal with them for 22 years do they?
