Back on the Candidates' List

I am absolutely delighted to be back on the Conservative Party’s List of Approved Parliamentary Candidates.

It is a real privilege to be back on the list, especially knowing how competitive the process has been since the last election and how many outstanding candidates were competing for a place. I am very grateful for the opportunity and the faith shown in me by the Party and to all my colleagues and friends in Halton for their trust in selecting me in 2008, and their support since. Like all candidates my focus remains on supporting our dedicated Council candidates, our fantastic Mayor in London, and our Prime Minister and Government, who continue to put country before party in the national interest.

New job, new focus for this blog

I was recently appointed as the Director of Strategy and Communication at the General Medical Council (GMC). As part of my new role, I am responsible for the GMC's relationships in Westminster with politicians of all parties. I will therefore continue to maintain my blog when I am campaigning but will not be commenting on a day to day political news or developments.

I hope you will keep following my blog, but will understand why I have changed the focus of it.

Happy New Year

I would like to wish you all a very happy, peaceful and healthy New Year.

Politically, there is much hard work to do in 2011 as the government continues to take the tough decisions needed to get Britain out of the mess left to us by Labour. I wish them every success in this vital work for our country.
