Iain Wright, MP, made a statement (Mail, May 8) saying he’d like to thank the people of Hartlepool for voting for him.
Sorry Mr Wright, but I and my wife didn’t vote for you.
Neither did many voters.
It was only the die-hard Labour voters in Hartlepool who got you elected into Parliament.
Personally we think the best man lost.
We’ll see how you fare and what you say and do.
You might do a lot better than our newly-elected Labour Hartlepool Borough councillors.
