I gather there is an MP running for somewhere and running for Councillor for somewhere else. I hope it isn't true. It would be silly.
It would be just as silly for someone to run for election in somewhere like Kirkcaldy, Buckingham, Witney or Sheffield Hallam and then really not be very interested in what their constituents are doing, because they are busy running government.
I want my MP, although he/she will be obviously spending a lot of time in London, to be in touch with what's going on here, where I am. Mine is.
Just saying. Genuinely don't understand why I should vote for anyone whose main interests are national, not local.
