As well being one of the most egregious abusers of the MP expenses system - arguably the worst, in fact - she is also a dictatorial, anti-smoking moron, with no time for democratic input from her constituents. As Luton working mens' club owner, Sean Spillane, found out last year when he wrote to the local newspaper about Moran's abandonment of the smoking ban exemption for private members' clubs.
Dear Sean Spillane,
I refer to your most recent letter regarding the smoking ban. The contents are noted, however I refer you to my previous reply on this subject, particularly the evidenced health benefits of the ban.
As MPs we are elected to weigh in the balance the greater good for our constituents, and it is for this reason that I wholly support the current policy. No amount of public bullying of the sort you indulge in will change my position.
I also understand that the constitution for working men's clubs mandates that they are not party political. I therefore understand that your public statements have been referred to the relevant governing bodies.
Margaret Moran MP
Labour MP for Luton South
Disagreeing with your MP's desecration of a manifesto commitment is apparently public bullying, according to hideous trougher Moran. Reason enough, even, to engage in a bit of spiteful mud-slinging against someone exercising their democratic right to freedom of speech.
I wonder, then, what she will make of this campaign from the Luton & Dunstable Express who, it would seem, have had enough of their embarrassingly disgraceful MP.
I reckon there are quite a few Luton bar and club owners raising a glass or two in celebration tonight.
