Education: Secondary / Sun 19th Dec 2021 at 12:17pm
THIS may be our last catch-up with Harlow MP Robert Halfon this year.
Over the eight years we have been interviewing Mr Halfon, there is always a lot to talk about, however, at the moment, we seem to have a lot to talk about.
This week, we were at Nels coffee shop on the High Street, Old Harlow (try the flat white!).
In this twelve minute interview we cover the following topics.
Fully supports the guy who whipped him & others into hugely damaging their reputation with voters on the Owen Paterson scandal, lied about Xmas parties whilst London was locked down, etc. Mr Halfon has a good poker face, got to give him that.
A shambles of any MP, manages to embarrass himself by constantly following the whip rather than having any moral compass.
Don't forget his words in support Johnson. He's a fool and has made himself toxic by association. Those who stand up, call it out and have the strength and integrity - true Conservatives must be the future of the party else it is dead. Weakness like his must be pushed aside.
Robert Halfon has done this country a good service as Chair of the House of Commons Education Select Committee. I believe he deserves credit for highlighting the 100,000 'ghost' children who have not returned to school during the pandemic. However, Halfon was completely wrong to vote against the Government's new Coronavirus restrictions voted upon in Division 150 on 14 December: https://votes.parliament.uk/Votes/Commons/Division/1182#noes
