It's difficult isn't it.
I live in a swing constituency so that tends to keep them on their toes.
My brother on the other hand lives in a solid red constituency. He often says they could pin a red rosette on a monkey and he would still win in that area and he is absolutely right.
Even after Boris's landslide Labour still had a stonking majority there.
It's very frustrating for him as it means their concerns come very low down the ladder.

When you say "get rid of him" is this one of those euphemisms?

Remember to vote in the next General Election above all else. If you feel able and aligned with your values, join the local political party the MP supposedly represents, and challenge at party meetings.

So an example. I emailed him that I am very concerned about train prices getting more expensive. He emailed back saying he is concerned as well as he gets the train often. I replied that unlike yourself you can claim travel expenses. No reply back

I emailed him about high rents around my area and the lack of affordable housing. He sent me this letter from the housing secretary outlining his plans. I really want a specific answer surely he is the mp of my local area so should be more specific.

Since when can MPs claim travel expenses for 1st class or anything other than Constituency to London?

All MPs are tremendously useless to their own constituency. Politics is based around London. Those who are MPs in the North spend barely any time in their own constituencies, it’s farcical. Better off contacting the local councils for anything you disagree with.
