Spare a thought for former MPs

The Leeds Evening Post does:

It must be the most humiliating way to be sacked.

One minute you're the bees knees with voters who have backed you to become an MP and help run the country.

The next, you're unemployed and standing on a stage next to the person who has just been handed your job before the eyes of a nation.

Now, a study being undertaken by Leeds University is to examine how deposed MPs cope with the trauma of being rejected by their constituents in a General Election.
