On Sunday we revealed that my lazy local MP, Matthew Offord hadn't bothered to sign a single early day motion. I was contacted by a expert on transport who pointed out that Hendon constituency has a large population of commuters. In the past few years there have been huge issues with both Thameslink and the Northern Line. These local services have been under huge strain. There has been a proposal to alleviate the strain by building the Brent Cross Light Railway. The heart of this service would be in Hendon, it would add a station for the RAF museum and the large development there, linking it to Brent Cross. It would also connect the East and West branches of the Northern Line and give a huge boost to the local community.
My correspondent says that Mr Offord has offered no support on this matter and has no interest in the project. He has had nothing at all to say on the issue of the Brent Cross redevelopment and the transport issues surrounding this. Surely we need an MP who cares about the issues that affect his constituency and the real issues that affect the lives of his constituents?
