Weekly News- Derek Twigg MP; yes man?

Below is the text of a letter published by the Weekly News (alongside others):

I read with interest the letters in last week’s Weekly News about Derek Twigg MP.
It is clear that in the wake of the Westminster expenses scandal and the overall conduct of politicians, Britain’s voters are looking for more from their elected representatives than simply being “yes” men and party stooges.
Since my selection as the Tory candidate in Halton last November, people in Widnes and Runcorn keep telling me that they want their MP to stand up for them and be their voice in Westminster, not Westminster’s or their party’s voice in Halton.

That is my commitment if elected; to speak up for Halton and not hide behind party lines.

Yours sincerely,
Ben Jones
