Are they contactable and supportive? Or do they shy away from dealing with your issues?

Ours, Allan Campbell, helped twice with my wife's citizenship application.

phantlers - 26 Mar 2020 21:00:32 (#3 of 47)

Former MP Lord (Barry) Jones did the same for us in 1992. Absolutely top man.

Mark Tami has yet to fill those shoes with any great aplomb and is fairly anonymous in comparison though I may yet need to call on his assistance.

Philip Davies. He is a cunt.

Ebadlun - 26 Mar 2020 21:24:42 (#5 of 47)

He's the Tory bastard's Tory bastard.

Mine is IDS. He has ignored all my communications until shortly before the last election, when I received a lengthy reply promising some action on an issue I had raised.

I’ve never had anything to do with my MP (Fabian Hamilton, Labour), except deliver leaflets etc during general elections. The last time I saw him he was inspecting the wares in the suits section at Marks and Spencer.

The one time I wrote to a politician was to a local councillor (Mohammed Rafique, Labour) about the replacement of attractive paving stones in our street with a tarmac surface. He was entirely useless.

Thangam's a good sort, hope she advances in the forthcoming Keirocracy.

machiavelli - 26 Mar 2020 21:57:13 (#9 of 47)

Thangham is an idiot. She confused a millennial rebuke with a death threat.

Mark Spencer. Chief Whip. Arsehole.

TommyDGNR8 - 26 Mar 2020 21:59:55 (#11 of 47)

Barry Sheerman. Last of the Blairite chancers. Utterly fucking useless; an embarrassment to Labour.

Snarlygog - 26 Mar 2020 22:01:11 (#12 of 47)

Luke Pollard only 1 of 2 Labour MPs in the SW. Good bloke.

ReverendBlueJeans - 26 Mar 2020 22:06:34 (#13 of 47)

Stuart McDonald (SNP), good bloke, helpful and available and even if he wasn't, I know where he lives and it's ten minutes' walk away.

CarlosFandango - 26 Mar 2020 22:21:51 (#14 of 47)

Shabana Mahmood.

Generally fairly low profile but I think basically competent.

Given how much the labour herd has been thinned, I imagine that she might be asked to do something something shadow something or other.

I wrote to her a few times and always received a pretty straight bat, standard reply; apart from once where she (or someone in her undoubtedly vast team) actually wrote back addressing my concerns in some detail.

Tenesmus - 26 Mar 2020 22:36:33 (#15 of 47)

Derek Thomas. Tory dullard who always votes with the party. Turns up in his corduroy jacket for the opening of a bean tin.

FGBFGB - 26 Mar 2020 22:48:43 (#16 of 47)

Catherine McKinnell. Very good, canvassed (or at any rate turned up on doorstep) when no election on. Replies sensibly to letters.

Ginmonkey - 27 Mar 2020 08:41:58 (#17 of 47)

Ellie Reeves, sister of Rachel. Decent but not very visible. Helped us put a rocket up Thames Water's arse when we experienced a lot of supply issues last year.

machiavelli - 27 Mar 2020 08:45:06 (#18 of 47)

Alec Shelbrooke. Responsible for this gem:

In December 2012, Shelbrooke introduced a Ten Minute Rule bill under which UK welfare claimants would be issued with a cash card instead of receiving their benefits in cash. The card would only permit claimants to make purchases such as food, clothing, energy, travel and housing, and prevent them purchasing items considered non-essential, such as cigarettes, alcohol, satellite television, and gambling.[Wiki]

Sir Oliver Heald - basically lobby fodder unless it involves the trains to London in which case it affects him too and he is on the case.

Towlie - 27 Mar 2020 08:51:44 (#20 of 47)

Parachuted in LINO racist banker who hates poor people. Seems to spend most of her time stanning an antisemitic Nazi sympathiser on Twitter.
