In the early hours of this morning, I was honoured to be re-elected as the MP for Esher & Walton constituency with 35,845 votes (63% of the vote share), and a majority of 28,616. (I am told this is the second highest Conservative majority in the UK, and fifth overall. Turnout was 72%, also above the national average.)
I feel truly humbled by this result. I owe a lot of thanks to a lot of people, because both serving as an MP and campaigning in an election is a team effort. But, above all, I want to thank everyone who put a cross by name, and indeed everyone who came out to vote. I will try to repay the trust vested in me. Above all, and more than ever, I will work as hard as I can to serve everyone, across every community, in every corner of this fabulous constituency.
