City MP should be in touch

First published in Letters

SHOULD Paul Flynn resign?

His constant emphasis on London and royalty is alienating local people. He has been in London too long. He might take some note: our NHS is in meltdown, Newport is dead, or at least dying from criminal city council neglect, Wales has no jobs to offer anyone, special needs support is being taken away from disabled children and disabled adults are having care homes closed down. In April thousands of Newport social housing tenants will be plunged into poverty, some will be taxed for not taking total strangers into their home, yet cannot be offered alternatives, and food is being distributed daily to Welsh people who cannot afford to eat or feed their children, while the elderly are confined to one room, unable to heat their homes. We need an MP who at least notes the area he was elected to represent, and isn’t trying to set some record for the most wasted time in Parliament via EDMs.

Mervyn should nip up the road to his near neighbour - the other MP for Newport - Jessica Morden and ask her the same questions.
These are two useless Labour people. Flynn could be dead and Newport people would vote for him and Morden is so inconspicuous and lacklustre as to be almost invisible. Newport is certainly on its knees but these MPs don't worry about things like that.
Instead of wittering about "our boys", Flynn should come home a bit more often and do something for the "boys" and girls here. Does Ms Morden actually live in this area any more? Where do the children go to school? Hazard a bet it's not Eveswell!!

One imagines what incoherent norbert would make it through the Labour Party selection process to replace him. Muffin the mule? Henry the one eyed parrot? Bob Bright?

I dont really want to know what my MP or AM or Councillor is doing at any particular time. However as long as they repond when a Constituant contacts them that is the most important thing, what I will say is that when I needed help regarding a matter, Jessica Morden was more than helpful, as was John Griffiths my AM when I contacted him.

They're well paid to do so and in fairness they do little, for their £100.000-plus public-funded salaries.
