It was nice to see that our new MP Chris Loder remembered to acknowledge the work of farmers this Christmas, and I can see from his blog that he is very farm orientated in what currently appears to be his main occupation; maybe the subsidies help.

Perhaps he should also think laterally outside of the box that appears to be his little world and remember all the other workers who worked Christmas Day and throughout the holiday. Some examples include health care professionals, police, fire and ambulance crews, shop workers and the toilet cleaner who ensured that the public toilets in West Bay were cleaned early on Boxing Day.

I believe Boris Johnson said MPs were there to serve the electorate.
