LETTER: An unfortunate denunciation

Mr Loughton’s denunciation of Ken Loach is unfortunate.

When I went to see I, Daniel Blake at the Connaught, I thought in fact that all our MPs should be forced to watch it even if they have to be nailed to the chairs!

It is important for them to realise how their ‘tough decisions’ affect the poorest people in society.

Many of Loughton’s constituents are in a similar position to the fictional Daniel Blake and it is insulting to them to attack Ken Loach for ‘drivel’.
