MP should resign to allow by-election
Should we really be surprised to hear that yet another MP has, allegedly, been caught using his privileged position to line his own pockets?
Perhaps not, but in this instance we are talking about our own MP, Mr Patrick Mercer (MP Fighting For Political Survival, Advertiser, June 6). Mr Mercer has resigned the Tory whip, but has said that he will continue as an independent MP until the next General Election in 2015. This, of course, begs the question that, if he is guilty, do the people of Newark really want someone like him representing their interests in Parliament?
— PAUL GREEN, Beacon Way, Newark.
Check to protect
THE case of Lee Christie is a chilling reminder of the online dangers children can be exposed to. With internet access so widely available through PCs, laptops, tablets, phones and games consoles, protecting youngsters from the vile intentions of predators like Christie is of paramount importance.
The scale of Christie’s disgusting obsession is staggering. He had almost 70,000 indecent images, of which more than 3,000 depicted extreme pornography. His depravity didn’t end there. He used deception to exploit vulnerable girls and persuade them to perform sex acts while he watched on a webcam.
