Essex Chronicle - Why is Sir Simon Burns MP so disliked?
You only need to do a quick Google search these days to see what people are saying about any given subject. I had reason to talk about my local MP, Sir Simon Burns, during the week and was surprised at how much vitriol there is for him.
It just so happened that a day or two later he announced that he would be stepping down from his position at the next election, giving someone else a chance to run in Chelmsford, so it seems like an ideal time to talk about him here.
I’ve had exchanges with him in the past.
Enough exchanges to know that we will never see eye to eye on many issues. But it shocks me that so many people seem unhappy with him…
