I have a new MP

Because my old MP retired. Fortunately Jeremy Hunt, the conservative candidate managed to hold my home constituancy of Surrey SW, which had been a Lib Dem target, with the majority increasing from just 861 to 5711. Overall, the election was much better than most people feared, with a much reduced majority for labour, although the prospect of Gordon Brown as prime minister is not a pleasant one. Laughably, Robert Kilroy-Silk was fourth in Erewash, where he was standing, which serves him right for ruining UKIP. The worst result, of course, was that George Galloway was elected. It does not bode well for the future of this country to have someone like him in parlaiment.
