Thank you to the 21,178 people who voted for me in Reading East on 12 December. Sadly, it was not our night locally, as the Remain voters of Reading East coalesced behind Labour. We put up a great fight and I had an enjoyable few weeks peddling optimism on the doorsteps.
I am proud of, and full of gratitude to, everyone on my team for their amazing efforts on the campaign in Reading East. Thank you everyone who helped me during the campaign.
We had a fantastic result nationally and can now look forward to 4-5 years of Conservative Government, outside the EU as a confident and re-energised Global Britain.
