LETTER: The MP has no control over when the pier is rebuilt

I agree wholeheartedly with your correspondent (Herald, September 5) that our MP was reckless in pledging that the re-constructed pier will open fully next year. It is obvious that Mr Lloyd has no control over the re-building time table, but after all this is election year!

I have no political affiliation but I have been impressed by the way Mr Lloyd has worked on behalf of the people of Eastbourne since his election.

His grasping of photo opportunities has served to keep his constituents informed of what he is doing. Perhaps if his predecessor had not been “photo shy” we electors would have been better informed of what he did for us and he may well have been still our MP.
