I tend to agree with your correspondent.
Strangely some local labour activists agree with the amount of effort for the community that Guy has put in over the last 5 years. One came knocking at my door in Prudhoe about 10 days ago & after berating him about Miliband, Balls & them squandering money in Northumberland on their white elephant in Ashington, I suggested that their biggest problem here was what had been done for the area by Guy & why would we want to change? The bloke (who I believe is a Prudhoe Town Councillor) admitted that we now have "a proper MP" & that this made things very difficult for them compared to when Peter Atkinson was here!
Corking comment from anonymous and as a Prudhoe resident who neither knows the poster nor the councillor (at least consciously) I will whole heartedly agree. Guy's efforts in Prudhoe for everyone, have been clocked.
