Miss Smith goes to Westminster
A wonderful sight this afternoon as my friend Chloe Smith finally took her seat in Parliament. Having won the by-election in Norwich North in July, she had to wait all summer until the House returned after the summer recess, but lost no time in making her debut today.
She has already proved herself an effective representative for her constituency, having been selected for the seat over a year and a half ago, and I know she will go on working hard until the election next year and beyond. I've known Chloe for nearly ten years, so I am totally biased when I say that she will make an excellent MP, and a breath of fresh air sorely needed on a day when the expenses scandal has made a come-back.
