I must admit to a certain schadenfreude watching the unfolding drama as the hand of hubris slapped Theresa May down. I was grinning nearly as widely as George Osborne, but as the night wore on my joy was tempered by the reality of the situation that we are now in.
I think a lot of people – even those of us involved in politics – were with Brenda from Bristol on 18th April when Theresa May announced a snap General Election. I was campaigning around West Garioch that day and for the remainder of that campaign, I found little enthusiasm for the prospect of this election.
Where better place to start with my revamped website than the General Election? I was very proud to give voters in West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine an opportunity to vote Green for the first time ever.
