I WANT to thank your readers in the Consett, North West Durham, Bishop Auckland and Sedgefield areas who have rescued us from the Corbynites.

I live in the south west of the UK and was absolutely terrified of the dangers of a far-left communist government that would have trashed our economy. Your voters have saved our country and we can now move forward and leave the EU.

I know waters will be choppy and Boris Johnson would not be my first choice as Prime Minister, but he seems to be the man we need at this time to get the job done.

Thank you so much, voters and readers of The Northern Echo, for lending your votes to the Conservative Party. We owe you one and we salute your courage.

Jill Swainson, Gloucester
