Sometimes an apple falls so far from the tree that it begins to look like a different fruit altogether.
My son is a prime example of that remarkable botanical phenomenon.
Three months later he is still living and working in this unimposing (I love the understatement, me) Cornish town. He had moved there to work as Danny Chambers’ campaign manager.
Who is Danny Chambers? Exactly the question I asked Matt, repeatedly, before it finally sunk in. Danny is the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for North Cornwall, one of Lib Dems target seats for the next election, whenever that might be.
So if you know anybody in North Cornwall, who is not sure which way to vote, please do me a favour and ask them to vote for Danny. We met him on the weekend and he is an extremely nice guy. He is a local vet with farming background, and he would be extremely good not only for North Cornwall, but for all of us, as we could definitely do with more extremely nice people as MPs.
