They are paid to represent all of us
THE Socialist MP for Blyth Valley, Mr Ronnie Campbell has branded those who voted for the Conservative party as “the enemy”.
Mr Campbell also labelled his fellow MPs who are asking questions of their leader as “career politicians”.
There is no doubt that Mr Campbell has made a lucrative career for himself over all the years he has been an MP for Blyth Valley.
We also have in our region Labour MP for North West Durham, Laura Pidcock, who has made it very plain that she would never befriend anyone that had voted for the Conservative party.
In the last General Election 37.3% of the voters in Blyth Valley and 34.5% in North West Durham voted for the Conservative party and as such their numbers can be counted in the thousands.
Because these people did not vote for a left-wing party they are seen as the enemy and not to be counted as people to have as a friend. MPs are elected to represent all the people residing in their area, whatever party they voted for. How can Mr Campbell and Miss Pidcock fulfil this obligation when they appear to hold this opinion of a very large section of the population who disagree with their political views? ROWLAND COULTAS,
