From a correspondent:
Owl should be wary of Jupp showing any independence of thought in forthcoming important votes in Parliament.
Remember Jupp’s last job before he became an MP was as a “SPAD” (Special Political Adviser) to current Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Secretary, Dominic Raab – the Cabinet Minister currently tasked with ensuring that any laws the Government disagrees with can be overturned by the PM and also attempting to remove or water down the judicial review system.
It may also be worth checking out the promises Japp made to East Devonians while canvassing:
“The 34-year-old says he will be working hard for the constituency, aiming to attract more GPs to the area, protect the area’s healthcare services, and even, if it is possible, reopening a railway station.
Issues he would like to address include public transport, cycling routes, electric charging points, neighbourhood parking and broadband.
Mr Jupp pointed to his previous professional involvement in negotiations for funding to reopen the Portishead to Bristol line. Asked about Sidmouth, he said that ‘if there is any way we could reopen the train line to Sidmouth we should’.”
