There are many articles and comments about the Gloucester MP, Richard Graham, and largely all we hear is about how he is different from the his predecessor, Parmjit Dhanda. The most recent example is the insight into his expenses, where his have gone up £50k, but he quickly points out that they are less* than Parmjits in his last year.
This is becoming a constant theme, his constant inferiority complex, where he has to keep comparing himself to Parmjit in everything he does. I’m sorry Richard, but if I could offer some advice – you are now half way through your term as MP, you really should step out of Parmjits shadow and look to making your own mark and standing on your own record instead of just comparing yourself all the time, firstly because you just don’t measure up, and secondly your rich benefactors find it embarrassing. Granted it’s a tough act to follow, but you were voted in and therefore really should try.
*Oh, and on the expenses, it really does help if you compare like with like, once again, a bit of research doesn’t do anyone any harm when putting your message out…..
