Sir Alan is obviously a sensitive soul when he's not voting to screw over the disabled, so we'll say what we think of him in a whisper. VoxPolitical, 2016/17. Alan Haselhurst

Both the staff and the dogs play a crucial role in helping people lead independent lives. Just 2 days earlier, she voted to cut £30 a week sickness benefit from those unfit to work in order to "incentivise" them to get back to work. Making disabled people poorer really helps them lead independent lives. Not. VoxPolitical, 2016/17.

- Andrew Adonis: Andrew Adonis
- Lord Adonis says he is thinking of giving up peerage so he can become Labour MP. The BBC’s Nick Robinson interviewed Labour peer Andrew Adonis for his (very good) Political Thinking podcast. In it, Adonis said he was considering giving up his peerage so he could become a Labour MP. He explained: "I think the biggest mistake I made in my political career was not to seek to enter the House of Commons. I didn’t think I’d be staying in politics for long; I saw myself as a public service reformer who would move on; I wanted to write books. But now I’ve become deeply engaged... because of the big controversial issues, I think it was a pity I didn’t go into the House of Commons, and I’m thinking that maybe I should seek to go into the House of Commons in future." Nick Robinson, The Guardian, Jun.09.2018.
