Sunday 25 October – Open Primary

Well it was not my night at the Primary for Penrith and the Border in Penrith Mart. Congratulations to Rory Stewart for his victory, he’s got a fantastic seat to represent and I wish him well. It was an interesting experience for me, there are things that I can learn from it. I am (curiously) relieved rather than upset.  Another positive was that as far as I can tell all the candidates fought good, honest campaigns with honour – there was absolutely no mud slinging going on, and we all got on well together. So I’ll have a sleep on it and then move on. And I’ve got a backlog of things to sort out up here, having spent virtually a month in Penrith, and that all starts tomorrow. My thanks to my supporters, I am grateful for all the help and advice they gave me – I will never forget that. And well done to the 180 or so voters in the Primary for surviving the marathon session.
