Tory MP candidate Lee Anderson says 'nuisance tenants' should be forced to …
Everyone's least favourite Tory MP is back in the news.
This time its because he used one of his members of staff to try and make a point about the cost of living and food banks. In a tweet, which soon spiralled out of control, he introduced his followers to a woman called Katy who works for him in his constituency of Ashfield.
Anderson wrote: "She [Katy] is single & earns less than 30k, rents a room for £775pcm in Central London, has student debt, £120 a month on travelling to work saves money every month, goes on foreign holidays & does not need to use a foodbank. Katy makes my point really well."
Last year Anderson engaged in some wordplay to explain why Kwasi Kwarteng's 45p tax u-turn was not actually a u-turn, just "a change in direction" and has suggested the economy is fine, because people still go to 'spoons.
"Go in any Wetherspoons, that's the barometer of how this country is doing, when Wetherspoons is empty we've got a big problem," he said at the Tory party conference in Birmingham.
