PoliticsHome: The varied life of Vernon Coaker
Labour MP Vernon Coaker gets around. A fan of Twitter, his 4,000 followers are given regular photo updates of what he has been up to, and this truly has been a week of contrasts. On Tuesday he was in Washington DC, and he posted a photo of him meeting President Obama at a St Patrick's Day event – Vernon is Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. Today he has already posted pictures of a visit to a school and a pharmacy – but Dot's favourite is the snap from Carlton Hill Age Concern spring fair. As Vernon tweeted:"Delicious looking cakes (as usual) at the cake stall."
