MP threatens to sue activist

A NORTH-EAST MP has threatened to take legal action against a grandmother in a bizarre row over a boules pitch.

James Wharton, the Tory MP for Stockton South, took action to remove “Save our park” posters stuck to trees by former teacher Carole Jones.

The MP found himself dragged into the row over the boules pitch when one of Mrs Jones’ posters depicted him as a James Bondstyle evil genius working with Yarm Town Council.

But Mr Wharton didn’t find the posters amusing. In an email, he accused Mrs Jones of fly-posting and distributing libellous cartoons.

My comment: An MP who obviously hasn't got the 'boules' for the rough and tumble of the job. I hope the electorate remember this at the next election.
