“It’s a tragic but sadly typical case, in which party members obsess constantly about every passing opinion poll and headline,” explained the mental specialist. “Now, a normal person like me also reads every day about cuts, kicking the poor and the sick and letting the bankers carry on rewarding themselves – but, unlike these unfortunate lunatics, I don’t let it dominate my life. I just fill my mind with page 3 girls, celebrity gossip and the football results, and remind myself what really matters in the real world – namely, that cabinet members like me are now being paid more than any other Liberal MP in history – and get on with enjoying life to the full.”
