Our MP has joined the government. Andrew Stunell is now a parliamentary under secretary of state for local government, quite an important brief for an administration committed to community empowerment, the Big Society and a bonfire of the quangos.
He's holding a meeting at Romiley Forum on Friday evening where he's going to repeat his reassurances of last Friday when he told activists and community groups of what his party's role in government seeks to achieve.
He's been a very good constituency MP. I maintained before that he's able to do this as he doesn't have the Westminster commitments. Well, he does now.
