SINCE 2007, Phil Wilson has had an office in Newton Aycliffe town centre, staffed by good people who handle his case files.

We now find that the Brexit Party candidate is based in Suffolk and Paul Howell from the Conservative Party lives in Darlington and sits on Durham and Darlington councils. How can he cope with this workload and be an MP?

The other candidates all come from Darlington, with the exception of the LibDem who comes from Gateshead.

Only Phil Wilson lives in the Sedgefield constituency. What can these people contribute to the constituency and how can they represent it when they don’t live in the locality?
