This blog has recently covered the lamentable performance of Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (MSEC) MP Tom Blenkinsop and his transparent attempts to offload the blame for the consequences of that performance onto Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
It has become clear, from information that came to light following the initial SKWAWKBOX article, that many of Blenkinsop’s constituents see right through the attempt and hold him responsible for his own failures and their impact on the perception of the party in the local area.
The SKWAWKBOX has received permission to publish a remarkable letter written to Tom Blenkinsop by Honor, a 17yo constituent, in which she lists the ways in which she feels he has failed in his duty as a Labour MP – and let her down personally. It is reproduced below, more than eloquent enough to need no further comment:
Honor told the SKWAWKBOX:
I met [Blenkinsop] twice when I was at school, just after he was first elected, however as the years have gone on, I can’t see how he has offered anything to his constituency.
I am a proud labour member and it’s so disappointing to have to deal with TB like this, as he bears the Labour label. I think the most telling part of my letter is about Andy Mcdonald in the neighbouring constituency, who is willing to work closely with Corbyn, yet Tom can’t?!
Indeed. The performance of Labour’s front-benchers, including Andy McDonald, puts Tom Blenkinsop and his ilk to shame, which may explain their inability to stop carping and seeking attention.
If Honor receives a reply from Blenkinsop, which we hope she does, this blog will provide an update.
