Simon Danczuk: 'MPs with real life experience'!

YESTRDAY, the Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk, a veteran of sex scandals, told Julia Rampen in The New Statesman that Keith Vaz should ignore calls to resign after allegations about his private life.
Danczuk believes it was right Vaz resigned from his select committee.  He said: “I think he is going to discuss it in more detail with the members of the committee. You have got to remember he is elected by MPs. There should be a discussion about conflict of interest. I think Keith would admit it himself.
“But let’s put it into perspective. As far as we know he hasn’t done anything illegal. We have different moral judgements.”
"In my experience, the reaction in the constituency can be very different from social media.  The benefit of being the MP for Rochdale is people come up to you and tell you exactly what they think. This little old Irish lady came up to me and said: ‘I see you’re up to your old tricks again.’  But then she said: 'I wish the papers would leave you alone. You get on with your day job.’
 "We don’t want cosseted MPs that meet a certain moral standard, we want people who have real life experience and bring it to inform policy. Britain’s a better place by having politicians in parliament who are from colourful backgrounds."
Mr. Danczuk, given his own vivid 'real life experiences', has a vested interest in promoting this tolerant point of view with regard to politicians.
