So it was quite a night across the country and here in North West Hampshire. At home I was honoured once again to win 62% of the vote with 36,591 people supporting me at the ballot box, giving an increased majority of 26,308. It was a humbling moment and I am grateful to everyone for giving me their confidence once again. I will do my best to live up to the faith you have put in me. Thank you.
Across the country is was an historic night for the Conservative party as we swept the board and won a significant majority in the House. It was a singular achievement by the Prime Minister and a vindication of his determination to see Brexit though. I know he will govern as a healer in this divided times, and that in the months ahead we will come together again and build a bright future. But for now, it’s back to work….
