An evening with Jonathan Lord MP

The food was superb, the service discreet and efficient and the atmosphere reeked with a sense of history and tradition. Our host, Jonathan Lord, newly re-elected MP for Woking told us about life in the Commons with a conservative majority and ‘reluctantly’ mentioned that he had returned the largest conservative majority in Woking for as long as anyone could remember.

It seemed to be unanimously agreed that this had been an excellent evening.
