Kwasi Kwarteng, Tory MP for Spelthorne has just a regal ticking off from the Deputy Speaker, Dawn Primarolo, for getting up to leave the Commons chamber straight after adding his ha’pence worth to a debate on the economy.

“Where are you going?”she demanded. “It’s usual to listen to the debate if you’ve intervened.” He sat down looking rather like the boy on the naughty step.

    Clearly, not a man with the courage of his convictions. If he did not have the courage to give an honest answer he could at least have said, I am going for a sh/t madam deputy speaker.

    Who cares if he has convictions or not? What does it matter what he thinks?

    All important debates are decided by the Prime Ministerial think-tank team. MPs are whipped to vote in almost everything they do in The House.
