After coming third as Labour Parliamentary candidate in Chesham and Amersham in 2005 and being eighth on the Labour list in 2004 and thus not becoming a Euro MP I shockingly won an election yesterday! It was a debate at the Cambridge Union Society: “This house believes the Kids Are Alright” where Dr Tanya Byron (tv parenting expert) and I trounced the opposition. Details here. Result was I think 58-36.
