Who is the Westminster Village Idiot?

My goodness, it's dusty around here! Sadly, my self-enforced hiatus was longer than expected but with so many balls in the air, one must sometimes make sacrifices.
Those of you who have stuck around or stopped by to check for updates every now and then; know that I love you from the bottom of my wine glass. 

My plan to come back with a conference special was put aside after hearing another story about offensive anonymous phonecalls. It would seem that for the past few months, perhaps since the start of Spring, someone has been making an effort to harass and insult MPs' secretaries or researchers.

There have been rumours and mutterings in certain circles about the calls and I've had to pick up details from more than one office but what I've heard has raised my ire exceedingly. Some might say these are prank calls but I say when continuous calls come through on a withheld number and an electronic voice starts throwing out insults which then causes a middle aged woman to break down and cry, it's not a prank.

Several offices have been targeted and nearly all those affected have been women. Does this make our Idiot a man? I think so but that's only because I have heard the speculation over who the Idiot is. Speculation that he also works on the estate, for an MP.

If any of my dear readers have any information or thoughts on the Westminster Village Idiot do let me know. You can email me at felicityparkes@gmail.com and I won't mention any names. I understand that the police have also been called in so if you're not wanting to tell me, do tell them instead.

And to the Idiot himself - I don't like bullies of any kind. What goes around, comes around.
 
Toddles, my darlings. x
