Sit back, kick off your shoes and enjoy a quality piece of political timing.
Day One: Conservative by-election candidate and county councillor John Howell misses two key votes on a proposed so-called eco-town in Oxfordshire.
Day Two: Conservative MP Grant Shapps speaks out against eco-towns in Parliament saying what an important issue it is.
But presumably not important enough for John Howell to turn up and vote on the topic?
Classy timing from Grant Shapps don’t you think?
