Oh dear. Fiona Onasanya’s 2018 didn’t go exactly as she would have hoped with the Labour MP found guilty of perverting the course of justice, after a court found that she had lied to police about speeding to avoid putting points on her driving license. Despite the Labour whip being withdrawn, Onasanya has since compared herself to Jesus and hinted that she may continue on as an MP regardless.
So, Mr S was curious to read Onasanya’s review of the year for her local paper, the Peterborough Telegraph. In the article, Onasanya looks back at the big events of ‘an incredibly busy, and sometimes fractious year in the House of Commons’ – Brexit, universal credit and ‘drastic cuts’ to the local area:
Curiously Onasanya doesn’t find space to mention her own problems. She does, however, make time to promise she’ll be back in the corridors of power next year:
‘While it has been a successful year fighting back against these injustices, there is still much more to be done, and you can rest assured that I will continue to do so as your representative in the corridors of power.’
Was the article penned in advance of the Christmas break?
