Making us look stupid

editorial image

CAN you believe it? The North East, especially the people of South Shields, have been made to look like idiots around the country (again) but this time by our own elected MP.

No wonder the Andy Capp image of the North is the image the rest of the UK has of us.

Fair enough make a point about the costs of funerals spiralling, but to make the statement Emma Lewell-Buck made to Parliament beggars belief.

She is supposed to be ‘our voice in Parliament, she certainly does not speak for me.

Is she the right person for the job?

John Vinton,
