I’m a bit late with this post but couldn’t let a momentous occasion for this blog such as this, go by without a mention of Kevin Barron saying that he will stand down at the next election.
Our Rother Valley MP says it has been the honour of his life to represent his constituency for more than 36 years.
Here is his post on Twitter announcing the news, which, if I wasn’t blocked by him I would have seen sooner – but never mind.
It has been the greatest honour to represent the people of Rother Valley in Parliament for over thirty-six years and I sincerely thank all of my constituents for their support over the years. I have made the decision that this Parliamentary term will be my last. https://twitter.com/wizbates/status/1146433543524016131 …
So, all the best to him for the future – no hard feelings or grudges held by maltbyblogger on this subject.
Here’s hoping he has a long and pleasant retirement and that whoever follows him as our MP will do their best for the constituency, regardless of party politics or self interest.
