A word never used in the Commons in the 19th century according to Hansard. First used in 2016 by @ChrisM4Chester - the foreign secretary he was referring to is @BorisJohnson https://twitter.com/Siobhain_Mc/status/1524729839382667266
... defined by the wonderful @susie_dent as an unprincipled person in office motivated by personal rather than public gain.
And featured today in the House of Commons - watch my speech here! https://twitter.com/susie_dent/status/1511639283509219329

I’m proud to be on the list of MPs sanctioned by Russia. I am glad my strong opposition over several years to the Putin regime and now to his war in Ukraine has been heard. I will continue to stand up for democracy and call for an end to this dreadful war. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/breaking-russia-says-its-sanctioning-26810860

In the light of comments today just reposting this of Maidan, Kyiv, 5 December 2013: I think Ukrainians understand fully that the EU (flaws & all) is a democratic project (one 🇺🇦 wants to join) and Putin's Russia is not.
Matty Waters ! 4-0 chester !
