image for Many MP's do actually work through their summer recess
Rachael Squeak, Shadow Spokesperson for Cutlery catches up on some constituency work

As MP's head off for their 76-day (11-week) summer recess, many of them are incensed that some members of the public actually think they are having a long jolly holiday.

According to research from the think-tank "MP Holidays-R-Us", many MP's don't really take advantage of the recess for avoiding their responsibilities as public servants.

Ray Dodgework, Labour MP for Tooting-Broadway said; "I spend the entire 76 days, without a break, looking for something to do during the recess. This is jolly hard work, don't you know - physically and mentally tiring."

From the Conservatives, Rachael Squeak, Shadow Spokesperson for Cutlery and MP for some Northern part of the country said: "I certainly don't have a break, and anyone who suggests I do will be in for trouble! The 76 days barely provide me with enough time to tour John Lewis shops throughout the country looking for bargain furnishings to spend my allowance on for my London office."

Robert Anonymous, LibDem MP for Smoking-on-the-Wold said; "Nobody knows who I am, so I have to work especially hard to be recognised by my constituents. This often involves long weeks trekking in the Cairngorms, or visiting all-inclusive resorts in Turkey for research purposes."

And finally, sole BNP MP, Ron Fascist said; "I generally go to Bradford or Luton to see how best I can serve our brethren of Asian extraction. If an immigrant or two needs encouragement or help with their packing, my constituency workers Ted Nasty and Imelda Vitriol are always ready and willing to help."
