Two final thoughts before I sign off.

First, a big thank you to the thousands of people of all political persuasions I have met during this campaign, who - almost without exception - have been grateful that a candidate has bothered to knock on their door, introduce themselves and ask what their concerns are. It has been a privilege to hear what you want from the next government and your next MP. I hope that if I am given the honour of serving you, I will live up to your expectations.

Second, an equally big thank you to the hundreds of people who have given their time voluntarily to help on my campaign. People are rightly very angry about the behaviour of MPs but it is important to remember that most people who join a political party do so without any prospect of every receiving a salary or an allowance. They do it because they care about their community and their country and want to see them change for the better. It was very humbling this afternoon to see so many people turn up to help with our final delivery. If you are one of those people - or one of the people who has helped to stuff envelopes or displayed a poster in your window or garden - I want you to know how grateful I am.
