"Matthew Parris is one of the most offensive people alive, when he was a Tory MP he was filmed trying to live for a week on unemployment benefit, he was treated with the utmost kindness by people who REALLY were living on the dole, they bought him drinks and food etc, afterwards he said it was impossible to exist on unemployment benefit............but he wouldn't recommend increasing it, what a twat eh."

So that's the bastard. Wasn't it he who was outed in a tv programme called Maggie's Militant Tendency?
