  1. I do apologise though tim is right – I shouldn’t have started this personal attack in the first place.

  2. ‘Tim – I’m from newcastle so I doubt any of my stinging attacks are based on accent or anti northern prejudice I don’t know where you got that from’

    Fair enough Joe

    It just seemed an extraordinarily strong attack on an MP who strikes as one of the few whose in politics for the right reasons (rather than the many who aren’t -and these are from all the three main parties)

    my comment was similarly over the top

  3. Blyth and Cramlington (along with I believe most of the rest of this seat – I may of course be wrong) were in the old Wansbeck before 1950

  4. Blyth itself was in Morpeth. The rest of the seat was in Wansbeck

  5. Thanks
