Good luck to everyone standing today

Obviously I particularly wish good luck to all the Conservative candidates standing in today's elections.

But democracy requires choice, and that means a range of candidates available for the public to choose from. So everyone who has put their head over the parapet and stood for election today, whether for causes I believe in or those I strongly oppose, has done something valuable for their community and British democracy by providing that choice. In that sense well done and good luck to everyone standing.

Now back to the doorstep. Polls are open until 10pm this evening so if you are a voter in an area of the UK with elections today and have not yet voted, please go and do so within the next four hours!
