Baldry the body donor

Baldry the body donor

MPs can be a cruel bunch.

“Do they want it?” was one response when Tony Baldry announced he was leaving his body to the Oxford University Anatomy Department in the Commons today.

Undeterred, Baldry explained:  "For various reasons – there’s quite a lot of it; I certainly think that any Member of Parliament who’s been here over 30 years, their liver is probably of some worth for anatomical examination. But most importantly, I want to make sure that when they open me up, they will find inscribed on my heart the words ‘keep the Horton General'.”

It’s great to see Baldry planning to give back to the Oxfordshire community, particularly after he took out so much recently, including several cars and a portable toilet when meeting with local constituents.
