JOHN Courtney of the Knowle Conservatives is justifiably proud of Caroline Spelman’s record as a hard-working MP for Meriden.
However, I cannot accept his statement that John Taylor was anywhere near as conscientious an MP for voters in Solihull. The only time we ever saw him was when an election was around the corner.
I can even recall one of the BBC news programmes pointing out that despite Mr Taylor being a consumer minister none of the consumer advocates interviewed recognised him. I used the phrase ‘invisible man’ in my earlier letter and I stand by it.
