SIR - I wanted to say thank you to the electorate for voting for my colleagues and I in last week's election. We will do our best to work hard for all of our voters.

With regard to Mrs Cook's comments, it is laughable that she should suggest there was "gerrymandering" as the cause of her losing out to a Conservative whitewash and that the boundary changes have cost her the seat.

This only too clearly demonstrates she has lost touch; the same as the Labour party have with the people of this country. In fact there is almost an implication that it is the electorates fault she lost her seat.

They have not engaged with the political process. The information they put out during the campaign did not connect with voters, otherwise they would not have lost 50% of their councillors.

All they have done is criticised without any constructive ideas.
