It's good to talk (if you're a Jewish MP)

November 24, 2016 23:01

They say Jews like to talk, and it seems Jewish politicians are no exception.

Parliamentary monitor They Work For You have compiled a list of the most chatty MPs in the class of 2010.

On the Conservative side of the bench, Robert Halfon is the overwhelming winner of the "most likely to talk in a debate award". He's spoken in a whopping 160 debates since he entered parliament for Harlow – 26 more times than the next talkative Tory.

Not to be outdone, Labour's Luciana Berger (Liverpool Wavertree) leads the way for her party. Although, having only contributed to 97 debates, she's got a long way to go.

Honorary Jew (following her recent marriage), Corby MP Louise Mensch has the privilege of being one of only seven freshmen MPs to win a slot on Question Time this year.

One Jew, unlimited opinions.
