Thank you to everyone who voted for the Conservatives (and me) yesterday. The result was much better than I could ever have imagined.
I had lots of help from the local activists, councillors, MPs and my predecessor Bob Neill. Bob is a good friend now and a great politician and I will need to work hard to fill his shoes.
I must also thank my agent, Andrew, my family and most of all my wonderful, supportive and gorgeous wife Susie.
Here are the main results:
