Britain’s most annoying MPs: Tristram Hunt

Britain’s ‘most unpopular MP’ Tristram Hunt quits
Saturday 14th January 2017
Whinging Blairite doubles salary with cushy new director job at the V&A museum
Blairite backbencher Mr Hunt, who is the son of a baron, became the second Labour MP to quit politics recently following Jamie Reed’s decision before Christmas that he would no longer be representing Copeland at the end of January after deciding to rejoin nuclear company Sellafield for more money.
He had ambitions to lead Labour after Ed Miliband quit following the 2015 general election defeat, but refused to be in the shadow cabinet when Jeremy Corbyn became leader.
In 2015, he was voted in with the same share of the vote — but this time on just a 50 per cent turnout, leading the New Statesman to label him “Britain’s most unpopular MP.”
In his new role he will likely more than double his MP’s salary of £74,962 — his V&A predecessor Martin Roth earned a salary of up to £150,000 as part of a total package worth up to £230,000 in 2015-16.
However Mr Hunt has been criticised over his position supporting entry charges for museums after previously suggesting they should be reinstated, commenting that scrapping them “didn’t achieve much.”
Entrance fees to museums, including the V&A, were abolished by Labour in 2001 to make culture and heritage open to all.
The current Labour deputy leader Tom Watson called Mr Hunt “a scab” two years ago after the latter crossed a picket line at Queen Mary, University of London, to give a lecture on Marxism.
Mr Watson said yesterday: “I am disappointed to see a talented MP like Tristram step down. His departure will be keenly felt by parliament and by the Labour Party.”
Mr Hunt’s privileged upbringing — as son of Lord Hunt of Chesterton — and academic career led some, including himself, to question whether he was the right person to garner enough support to make it on a leadership ballot paper.
Mr Hunt is also notoriously close to right-wing Labour donor Lord Sainsbury, who he has called a “secretive billionaire” who “dominates” Labour’s “unaccountable” Progress faction.
Announcing he was quitting politics, Mr Hunt said his time in Parliament had been “deeply rewarding and intensely frustrating” and told of “harrowing effects of poverty and inequality” he had seen as an MP.
It has been suggested that Ukip leader Paul Nuttall could stand as a candidate for the Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election on January 21 — a seat Labour has held since it was created in 1950.
YESTERDAY’S “shock announcement” that inveterate anti-Corbynite and probable Poshest Labour Party Member award-winner Tristram Hunt had jumped ship mid-stream was in actuality nothing of the kind. The only real surprise with Hunt’s quitting the party is that it took him so long to do it. His new job at the V&A will undoubtedly be a better fit for Hunt who can now happily fill his days surrounded by the pillage of an empire he obviously still yearns for while completely ignoring the hardship suffered by the plebs in the 21st century: here.
