Chloe Smith: Up in Norwich, down to earth in Westminster

Chloe Smith seemed buoyant as she spoke with David Cameron just now – it was an impressive win for her and the Conservatives.

She should enjoy the lime light because it doesn’t last. Has anyone heard anything about Edward Timpson in the last few months?

To be fair to the Tory MP, who took Crewe and Nantwich, he’s been beavering away for his constituents – you just don’t get much coverage as a backbencher.

Chloe – is it just me or does she have something of the Ruth Kelly about her – will now have to get used to the more tedious realities of parliamentary life as a junior MP.

They include days spent sitting through delegated legislation committees, communicating with the leader through a burly chief whip and trying to stay awake while Sir Peter Tapsell or Gerald Kaufman bangs on in a debate about badgers or something.

Welcome to Westminster!

The sour grapes barely concealed. We will need many more Chloes and Edwards to sort out the mess we are now in. Get used to it, Junior.

Sounds like a wonderful new job for someone so ambitious and young...

I'd slip my ballot in her box, if you know what I mean.

@ Rightoldie
no sour grapes old boy. Just a spoonful of reality.
