First class film on the "never to be seen" local constituency MP from Middlesborough

This film enlightens all to the fact that the (late) MP Sir Stuart Bell, a self-serving MP who spend so little time with his constituents that the people of Middlesborough that he represented for the last 30 years had never even heard of him. This was an MP who took advantage of the socio-political landscape to spend most of his time not being around and doing the job that he was elected for. Film-maker John Walsh excellently highlights this fact when he stands himself for political office as the conservative candidate and ends up holding surgeries himself - Bell not having held one surgery for 15 years. As much as it is humorous this film is a serious look into life in Middlesborough - a town with high unemployment that needs someone to represent the community and it takes John Walsh to try and help whilst standing for the next election. A really good watch and insight into the world of Middlesborough. Highly recommended.

Very informative and funny too

If you've ever wondered how somebody gets started in politics and all the drama with it, then this movie is for you. Set in my home town of Middlesbrough (deserted by Labour) it follows the in the footsteps of John Walsh as he attempts to go from documentary film maker to MP. He comes across as a genuine chap who really wants to help people. There are funny moments and you really want him to succeed in the end. The graphics are very good and some people will learn something new about the UK political system from them. Such a shame he didn't win as you can tell from this movie that he would have made a difference.

political yet personal, funny and affronting doco

As an MP, Member of the Public, I often look upon the behaviour of those other MPs, Members of Parliament with dismay. The ludicrous hooting and catcalls in the debating chamber, the expenses scandal and the general feeling, I have, of how insincere They seem. So when John Walsh, Member of the Public and a previous Labour voter becomes a Conservative Candidate I was sceptical that it could be a story I could enjoy. I was wrong, 'Toryboy The Movie' is hugely fun. John is immediately likable and we happily go with him to a dour Northern town sharing his aspirations. When John discovers a scandal, concerning 'cookie faced' MP (of Parliament) Sir Stuart Bell, we are rightly indignant and drawn further into the story but it is one still told from John's humorous point of view and still greatly entertaining. The documentary is shot simply and effectively with hand held camera which feels open and very personal. This is interspersed with newsreel and hilarious animation that keeps things lively and us informed.
