Political passion part of democracy

HOW ‘holier than thou’ of Coun Sandra Graham to claim political point scoring turns off voters (News Guardian, letters, May 24).

If she really believes that she should have stood as an Independent. Political argument and passionate disagreement are the very stuff of democracy.

Personally I will always challenge and politically ‘point score’ with anyone who puts Labour after their name – what do they expect?
