I have spent the last 16 years voting Labour and it's about bloody time we got a Labour MP, but I could see that Simon Hughes
was a good MP and people are being really unfair on him. I have been disgusted by the coalition, but that doesn't detract from his work as an MP and what he has done for people. Every time I work at an election people come in and tell me tales of how he personally helped them. Yes I disagree with his politics and I'm sickened by his time in government, but that doesn't mean I can't respect the other work he has done.
I have many times seen him park up and droves of people go to talk to him. That's a hard act to follow and Neil Coyle
has some big shoes to fill. I personally hope he tries to be like Simon Hughes
and gets out and about and really tries to connect to people. But maybe on a bike rather than in a taxi.
