How are they serving you? Your dealings with our local MPs

IT'S always useful to keep an eye on how our MPs are going with serving their communities.

Usually that's measured by speeches to parliament or projects approved, but in many ways the most important job an MP has is serving his or her constituents.

Have you had an issue you've had to go to your MP about? What was your experience?

We don't need to know details, but were you able to get them, or an officer of theirs, on the phone? Did they meet you in person when you went to their office? How responsive were they to your concern or issue?

Vote below in the poll or polls relevant to you. You can also leave a comment below.
