I WOULD like to endorse the sentiments expressed by Gary Mundell (HAS, Oct 12) regarding responsibilities of our elected MPs.

South of the Tyne and north of the Tees, there are 17 MPs elected to represent us, and paid handsomely to do it.

All we ask of them is to reflect the wishes of their constituents, but we find all 17 doing all in their power to stop us leaving the EU. They treat us with contempt.

To my dying shame I voted for Phil Wilson in the last election, but in the next one I have two votes – one less for Mr Wilson and one for whoever is best placed to get rid of him.

All of us in this position, let’s give the 17 their p45s the day after the next election.

Joe Mulroy, High Coniscliffe
