There's an old saying in Parliament: never write something to a constituent you wouldn't want to see on the front page of your local newspaper. The Sun reports this morning that after receiving an abusive letter from a constituent, Labour MP David Clelland sent back a reply telling his constituent to "stick your vote where it best pleases you". The constituent says he is "very offended".
Most MPs would have sent a reply back full of the usual platitudes and ignoring the abuse in the original letter. Good for David Clelland for standing up for himself.
