LETTER: You have to admire efforts of new MP

Ben Bradley, MP.
Ben Bradley, MP.

However you felt about the results of the General Election in Mansfield, you cannot avoid admiring the efforts of Ben Bradley MP.

Whilst he, sadly, did not have a very hard act to follow in my view, he has embraced his role and has, and does, look for every opportunity to promote himself (he will after all seek re-election) and therefore Mansfield, even when it is just outside his area (Rhubarb Farm). His regular feature in The Chad is also to his credit.

We can only hope that the glare of the spotlight now on Mansfield will yield better prospects than years in the shade.
