Elected to the executive of the 1922 Committee
27/05/2010 23:37:00

May is proving a good month for me as far as elections are concerned. I learnt this afternoon that I have been elected to the Executive of the 1922 Committee.

Being elected to represent my home town in Parliament was a huge honour, however, I am realistic enough to recognise that most people voted for me because I was the Conservative candidate rather than voting for me as an individual. Following David Cameron's very sensible recognition that Ministers should not take part, the electorate for this election was my fellow Conservative backbench MPs. It's nice to be chosen by your peers and I hope to use the position to make sure the new MPs' expenses system is workable and to champion a stronger role for backbenchers in Parliament.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
