A hard act to follow
14/02/2008 09:44:00

Andrew is going to be a hard act to follow. He’s been involved in Croydon politics for a long time, initially as a local councillor and then as a Greater London Assembly member and MP and has a well-deserved reputation as a hard-working and effective local representative.

For me, that’s a key part of an MP’s job - being there to support people who are struggling to get someone in government to listen to their concern or who don’t know where to get help. The reputation of politicians must be at an all-time low at the moment and if we want to turn that around we need to focus more on this part of the job.
