ELECTION: Stick to your boundaries

With reference to the College by-election in Ashington, I found it somewhat amusing, given the stated views of the United Kingdom Independence Party on people crossing borders, to find leaflets from their candidate and regular letters’ page contributor Peter Curtis on my doormat in the Seaton Ward.

Perhaps Mr Curtis should take his own party’s advice and stay in his own boundaries.

I should also at this point extend my best wishes and congratulations to the Labour Party candidate Mark Purvis for his resounding victory.
