Golden opportunity; LETTERS to the EDITOR.

I AM sure that I am not the only person to be taken aback by Esther McVey's letter (Daily Post, May 27) concerning MPs' expenses.

For a few seconds you could be forgiven for thinking that it is she rather than myself who is standing as the Prospective Independent MP for Wirral West.

Of course, Miss McVey is standing as the Conservative candidate at the next General Election, so to hear her bemoaning the failure of her colleagues and that of the Government to bring in reforms last year is hard to take seriously.

Isn't it quite extraordinary to watch how on a daily basis our tired, immoral and totally discredited mainstream politicians are scrapping over who can be seen as the saviour of our Parliament. While they are concerned with cobbling together agendas to clean up our parliamentary system, who is gover ning on the other big issues of the day such as the economy, terrorism and unemployment? The voters of this country have a golden opportunity at the next election, which cannot be called a day too soon, to reject the politics of the past and elect independent candidates such as myself who genuinely offer a fresh start and new ideas.

David Kirwan, Prospective Independent MP for Wirral West
