I've gone from observer of local and national UK politics to, as of 7/5/15 actually becoming a politician, elected as a local councillor - I'm in the mood for watching any Bond film as a blessed relief now the campaign's over!
I'm sure I speak for everyone here when I offer our congratulations at this good turn. Many of us know Guy on these boards as an all-round stand-up chap, easily one of our best & brightest contributors well worth reading. He's certainly one of very small handful of contributors whose posts I always check out for their insight even in topics that hold no interest for me whatsoever.
Guy's too bashful to say where he got elected and we're not allowed to out people, but I'll give you a clue. He's the candidate who ran on the Quantum banner.
Ah well, onward and upward. In no time he'll be giving David Cameron advice. Just keep an eye out for pesky British agents.
