Silly question time for Blackpool South MP

As the Prime Minister sits down for Christmas dinner to chillax with his family and friends, will he spare a thought for my Blackpool constituents and 500,000 others, whose Christmas will be mired in the incompetence and random cruelty of the benefit sanctions imposed by the Department for Work and Pensions? My casework on this includes a woman denied jobseeker’s allowance for doing voluntary work at one local branch of a national charity rather than at another. Will his new year resolution be to resolve the chaos of sanctions and of universal credit?

Gordon!  If you want answers to vague questions, questions without substance, why don't you practise what you preach and reply to Andy Millers' family who want to know why you are blocking a charge of murder being brought against Marston bailiffs?  Or why you have not been more vocal in the need for a resolution in the case of the missing Blackpool child, Charlene Downes?

It is four years since Andys' Corporate Murder and you have never had the decency to reply to a single letter.  If that's how Labour operates...?  You must be very busy at home in Brighton not to want to expose murder of Blackpool people.
