IT is often no doubt correctly stated that Glenda Jackson's well-resourced and financed administrative team in her Commons' office responds to individual's personal needs and requests in an efficient manner, but with great respect that is only a small, albeit important part of an MP's duty to her constituents .

The wider community in Hampstead has suffered at the hands of an invisible MP who seems unwilling to listen to her constituents and vote accordingly, or even at all, in the Commons.

This needs to change, particularly in the current climate of voter anger with the present bunch of politicians and a serious economic crisis in this country. The public yearn for strong leadership from someone who listens to their views and who knows, understands and cares about the complex issues affecting the diverse population which is the new constituency of Hampstead and Kilburn. Then that person can truly earn the right to be our next MP.

Where was our MP when I and many others fought against closure of the local Post Office in South End Green?
