MP in pointless Motion shock - Part III

It is always intriguing to have a good old trawl of the EDMs every once in a while to see which MPs are putting down pointless Motions. Well, I was delighted to see this offering from Andrew Pelling, the Tory MP for Croydon Central:

EDM 685


Pelling, Andrew

That this House expresses its sympathies to Rick Stein and his family on the passing away of their characterful Jack Russell, Chalky, acknowledging the heartache and distress that losing a family pet can cause.

Now this is no reflection at all on Rick Stein (an interesting character whose wife hit his mistress with a turnip and who is also the uncle of Judge Jules) or his dog, or the relationship between man and dog, but really? This one is banal even by EDM standards.
