Who voted for Amanda Platell...?

Last week I found myself in agreement with former Tory spindoctor Amanda Platell in her condemnation of Derek Conway, the MP who paid his son £40,000 of OUR MONEY for doing little if anything.

But today, it's back to business as normal:

Amanda was reviewing the papers on Andrew Marr's political show on BBC TV this morning. She was commenting on the controversy surrounding the Archbishop of Canterbury when she made a point of letting us know she's a devout Christian:

If I weren't here, I'd be in church.

Fair enough, perhaps. But then she added:

I know what a lot of my own constituents think...

Er, excuse me. What constituents might they be then? She's certainly not an elected MP. And as far as I'm aware, she's neither a county councillor, district councillor, or parish councillor.

Pompous or what...?
