Where's Craig Whittaker?

Has anyone been in touch with Craig Whittaker?

I've been trying to get a response from our MP Craig Whittaker to a question I've asked him but he hasn't replied to my email. I thought maybe he's too busy with his re-election campaign but it turns out that other constituents have been experiencing a similar problem. They've contacted him on his Facebook page only to find that he has deleted their questions and blocked them from his page.

Has anyone been successful in getting in touch with him?

Yes, speak to him face to face regularly, he's always around and can't help but bump into him.

Try www.craigwhittaker4mp.co.uk  there's email addresses and phone numbers so shouldn't be too difficult to get hold of him.

Haven't seen Josh recently though, last time I bought him a pint we had a great chat. Looking forward to seeing him again too.

He's letting his, err, 'record speak for itself'...

It does seem an odd tactic for a parliamentary candidate to disappear in the middle of a GE campaign.

Can I ask locals to check their sheds and gardens in case you have accidentally locked Mr Whittaker in and he needs letting out.

Meanwhile can people also check the roofs of local schools in case he is there waiting to do another pointless stunt.

Late in April I received a letter from our MP, in a House of Commons envelope, addressed to 'The Occupier...'.

It contained a survey which asked me to tell him which of the following issues are of concern; how I think the local council are doing, and most puzzlingly :"On a scale of 0-10, where 0 is terrible and 10 is excellent, how good a job do you think I am doing as your MP?"

I made a mental note of my answer to this, but really couldn't justify the cost of an envelope and stamp to send it back. How many of these letters did Craig send out? Each will have cost us the cost of production plus 2nd class post. I'd estimate about a quid in total...

Anyway, to answer the question - from his letter:

"May I also take this opportunity to inform you of my upcoming surgeries across the Calder Valley.

Open and 'Pop Up' Surgeries. No appointment necessary, just come along and have a chat

Friday 21st April - Elland Morrisons: 10am-12pm
Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th April - Brighouse Spring Market: 10am-5pm"


So - there we have it. According to Craig Whittaker's definition, 'across the Calder Valley' stretches from Brighouse to Elland. 

I don't think he knows he represents Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge, Todmorden, etc.

Paul, I've checked in my shed and he's not there. Any other ideas?

When an election is announced parliament is dissolved, so he is no longer an MP.  Long may that continue.
