A couple of weeks ago, I posted a letter from DWP minister Mark Hoban, the contents of which showed utter contempt for fact, reason, and for the victims of his department’s so-called ‘reforms’.
It turns out that this contempt extends to his own party colleagues, too. His response to Tory MP for Macclesfield, David Rutley, was a rote regurgitation of nonsensical party soundbites, but if written for him specifically, it at least showed an attempt to genuinely communicate.
But Hoban has sent the exact same response to at least one more Tory colleague in response to a completely separate enquiry on behalf of a constituent – MP for Brighton Kemptown & Peacehaven, Simon Kirby:
The exact same response, apart from the names and date.
Clearly, the Tory front bench not only despises the ordinary public and especially the vulnerable – but also their own backbench colleagues. Or at least any of those who still care enough about their constituents’ welfare and opinions to bother to send in a question on their behalf.
Well done to those MPs – and shame on a pathetic minister from a malignant department, who can’t even be bothered to write a proper response to his own Parliamentary colleagues.
