I am very pleased that the excellent Conservative candidate for Newark, Robert Jenrick, was successful in yesterday’s by-election. I have been up several times to support Robert, including yesterday, and the atmosphere was fantastic. The result was bleak for Labour, in a seat they held under Tony Blair, coming in 3rd.. It also denied UKIP a parliamentary seat, with them losing considerable support since the European elections just last week. I wish Robert well as the new MP for Newark and look forward to working with him in Parliament.
