How relavent are the Maldives?

If the current proposals from the Boundary Commission are enacted, Victoria Ward will fall with Southend West constituency, which is currently represented in Parliament by David Amess MP.

Today whilst PMQs was dominated by a debate over the future of the NHS, David Amess chose to use a rare question to raise the issue of the government of the Maldives. Previous Parliamentary Questions from Mr Amess include his infamous question on the subject of an entirely fictional drug called ‘Cake’ after being set up by a TV spoof.

PMQs is the one opportunity that backbench MPs have to guarantee an audience for an important issue. Does Mr Amess think that there are no more pressing matters to his constituents than the government of the Maldives?
