This morning whilst I slept Jon told our children that Mummy got more votes than last time but didn’t win the election.
Harry said “I should have taken some leaflets to school and then Mummy would have won”.
Poppy said “Never mind we’ll save them for next year.”
The General Election is over and I would like to thank all who supported me.
It wasn’t the result that I had hoped for personally and nationally but the reality is that Labour will not be forming the next government, have lost 3 general elections in a row, and have barely improved since their 2010 defeat.
Democracy is a great thing. I accept the result and will move on.
Next step to hold a thank you party for all of those who have helped on the campaign trail.
