"Nice try David Pollitt...": response to UKIP candidate's attack on Claire Perry MP

Written by Val Compton on .

Nice try David Pollitt. Unfortunately for you, anyone who has contacted Claire Perry with a predicament such as unglamorous flooding and sewage, to requiring support for their project or merely because they need a problem sorting out, is likely to tell you that she is very much in touch with the people in her constituency.

She is not and does not claim to be superhuman, like any of us she can make mistakes, but she is an intelligent woman with a real life and real feelings, who ensures she is keeping up with what’s happening on her patch, on her watch.  
An “unrepresentative cog”?  I don’t think so – but you, of course, just might be.  And no, I’m not a member of the Tory Party.
