It seems Sir Jeff prefers the bright lights of London. Only five days after getting elected to Lagan Valley he has decided he would rather stay an MP, thank you very much.
All this might be a bit of a shock to the good people of Lagan Valley who voted for one person and got someone entirely different. But those are the rules.
Emma Little-Pengelly was gracious enough to take part in our election event last week and she went down very well with the crowd. Hopefully, for her, she gets a similar reception in Lagan Valley.
I help to manage Slugger by taking care of the site as well as running our live events. My background is in business, marketing and IT. My politics tend towards middle-of-the-road pragmatism, I am not a member of any political party. Oddly for a member of the Slugger team, I am not that interested in daily politics, preferring to write about big ideas in society. When not stuck in front of a screen, I am a parkrun Run Director.
