My post yesterday on Bill English and his mostly closed electorate offices in Balclutha and Gore has attracted some interest on Red Alert and on facebook.
A number of people commented that they were experiencing the same issues in other National-held electorates.
I’m wondering how many National Party electorate offices are actually staffed on a regular basis?
And how much direct constituency work they do and what options are open to constituents if they try to approach their local MP and are rebuffed, ignored or can’t make contact because it’s always closed.
Would be interesting to find out.
