The MP service I provided in the last Parliament

I think an MP should be easily contactable and personally interested in constituents’ views and problems.

I wrote a daily diary piece seven days a week all year setting out my views and actions on national matters, and often a second piece on local issues where I was involved or urging the Council to take action. I encouraged constituents to logon and write back if they wished.

I provided an email answering and problem handling service seven days a week 51 weeks a year myself, with the other week covered during the working week by my staff.

I participated in more debates and votes than the average MP, and made sure I was always in Westminster when there was business on that mattered to my constituents. I did not undertake any foreign trips when Parliament was in session.

I held regular surgeries with appointment times that suited my constituents.

I kept my office costs charged to the taxpayer to well below the average MP office costs, by doing more of the work myself.

    John.

    I have no problem with the way you work or conduct business on our behalf, the ease of contact, and your response times when help is ever in need, which is first class.

    The biggest problem you have, are the others within your Party who appear not to be even small “c” Conservative thinkers at all.

    Afraid the latest Fiasco on Social Care costs is going to lose you, and your Party some votes.

    Dear John Redwood,

    I wish to thank a human being for his service to his country when corporatism has rendered the rest into selfishness, nation and caring is what made Britain Great, not greed. Please stand again.

    I would like to thank our host for the efforts he puts in representing those of us who live here in Wokingham.
    I read his diary every day and find the entries both interesting and educational.

    I have always found that John replies quickly and clearly when contacted about local matters, as well as national and international matters.

    I look forward to John being returned with an increased majority next month. I just hope that I live long enough to see the party return to a true Conservative party again.

    It is sad, in my opinion, that there are not too many MPs who are as conscientious and willing to engage as our host is.

    Again, many thanks John for your service, duty and dedication to those of us lucky enough to reside in Wokingham.
