MPs have a laugh over James Cleverly's 'terrier-like' lobbying

The Tory MP for Braintree has been pushing hard for less congestion on the A120.

Readers should know that Tory MP Jesse Norman made a bad joke about lobbying in the Commons this week.

Getting enthused about the lobbying prowess of James Cleverley, he declared: “My honourable friend has been indefatigable. In fact, few parliamentarians in any Parliament could have matched his energy and zeal in pressing the case for the A120.

“He has been terrier-like in his lobbying and he can take it from me that the Minister has been duly terrierised.”



John Bercow clearly enjoyed the lobbying banter. He said: “I hope that the honourable gentleman will have that tribute framed and erected in a suitable location in his home.”
