Reader letter: Major parties fail to listen to locals

editorial image

I notice that a report from Nottingham University shows that 80 per cent of the public want an MP to be local.

Once again the Tories and Labour have not listened to the people and have forced on us a Tory businesswoman from Solihull and a Labour barrister previously from Kensington, London.

What is it with these two failed parties that time and time again think they know what is best for the people of Erewash and fail to listen to the people time and time again?
