Blyth MP is 'easiest to understand' says Westminster website

Plain-speaking North East MP Ronnie Campbell has been awarded the accolade of being "the most easily understandable MP" in the House of Commons.

According to Westminster website, the Labour Blyth MP, who is a former miner, was considered to be the only MP whose speeches could be understood by the average 13 to 14 year old.

Mr Campbell said he was unsure if it was a compliment or not.
