The real reason Jane Kennedy threw in the towel

It is all there in Hansard from the other week, as dug up at the time:

John Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what recent representations he has received on odour emissions from the mushroom composting industry. [276587]

Jane Kennedy: I have received representations on the subject from my hon. Friend and also from Misson parish council.


"Paddy Tipping (Sherwood) (Lab): What recent discussions he has had with representatives of the farming sector on the future of the English pig industry.

Jane Kennedy: I met Mr. Stuart Houston, the chairman of the National Pig Association, at Morrisons’ new abattoir in Spalding, which I was privileged to open last week".

Who knows what other gross indignities the poor woman has suffered at Defra? Who could blame her for walking?

one imagines her life's ambitions are now complete

new abattoir in Spalding, which I was privileged to open

magic !

did she slaughter the first unfortunate porker with a ceremonial trowel ?

perhaps drawing on her experience, contacts, and disgust with Gordon Brown, she could retire to set up a 'retirement-home-with-extreme-prejudice' for Parliamentary porkers ...

Nick - One does have to wonder. Puts me in mind of the old ad industry joke about the chap who starts at ana agency and is thrilled to be making coffee for the creative director etc and is bragging to his ma about it.

To which she replies - 'and for this you went to Oxford?'

i have just spent a fruitless quarter-hour of my life (I know you can empathise with this, C) looking for a photo of La Kennedy at Morrison's famed abattoir

strangley, neither her PR machine nor Morrisons' seem to feel it's the kind of photo-op they wish to be associated with

I have however obtained an aerial photo of said building ... not quite the same

(perhaps Mutley is acquainted - he's an expert on meat pies)

the more I look at this, the worse it gets

... exemptions have been made for religious slaughter, mainly affecting halal and the slaughter of lambs. Will the Minister come to a meeting that I have organised to view a video that shows the effects of such slaughter?

Jane Kennedy: I will be happy—perhaps that is not the right word—to come to the meeting and view the video, although I shall do so with a sinking heart.

I guess even those don't compare with the stench coming from Brown's undead corpse...

ND - Shame your toils went unrewarded photo-wise Sounds like the poor woman deserves a holiday, at the very least.

Julia - As pithy as ever.
