Eric Pickles defends his second home on Question Time
Here is Eric Pickles' legendary performance from Question Time last week. Note his assurance that the fact he sometimes has to be in Westminster for 9.30 entirely justifies his being bought a second home at public expense.
Bear in mind too that Pickles was promoted to leaven the Cameroons with some Northern common sense. He was meant to be rough, tough and gruff from somewhere like Brough (and to have eaten several cream puffs).
I fear that the way Pickles crashes and burns here is symptomatic of the way the entire political class is becoming distanced from the large majority of the people they are elected to serve.
