      Blog post:: Drug dealer in MP reference storm

      I don’t fully see the problem here - she didn’t conceal the fact she was his cousin did she? I thought the whole point of such references was to give some context (such as here) which might incline a judge towards a somewhat more lenient sentence. They are surely a normal part of the way sentencing works. In this case I would guess the letter wouldn’t help much - but I don’t see it as a cause for indignation.

      Ha ha, very good Rumbold!

      I think I should have waited until I’d had my first cup of coffee of the day before making my (earlier)comment!

      “I didn’t know she was an MP”

      I expect Gordon too wished she had remembered she was an MP in the run up to a difficult election

      Oi, don’t I deserve a hat-tip for this?

      LOL. Bet she’s not having that family feeling quite so strong any more!

      She added: “I was asked to provide this letter by other members of the family.”

      Adds a nice Mafioso touch to the proceedings.

      Sarah AB - your post @3 gave me a smile as I hadn’t realised the point of Rumbold’s post either at first.
