In defence of our local MP

I write in response to the letter entitled ‘MP needs to be positive’ (News Post Leader, January 8).

I would imagine Ronnie Campbell has heard all this type of criticism before and does not need me to defend him, but I will anyway.

Mr Campbell is an excellent constituency MP, having championed various local causes, most recently lending his support in opposing the planning application for the proposed Barratt’s development in my home village of New Hartley.

I find it predictable that any constructive work he has done is conveniently ignored, more often than not by political opponents.

He speaks the truth and this obviously rankles with them.
