Stella Creasy MP's locum MP experiment
Catching up on non-corunavirus stories, I see that Stella Creasy MP's locum MP experiment has run its course. The details of the casework I don't find surprising and would be familiar to many caseworkers and councillors. The key problem I see with that role is where the constituent wants policy casework, explaining the MP's position on this or that public issue, or asking the MP to lobby ministers. I don't see how that can be farmed out to anyone else.
